Milan - An Italian millionaire has reportedly been jailed after forcing his girlfriend to pour acid on her exes in order to "purify her".

Alexander Boettcher, 30, an Italian property developer, was found to have "lured" his girlfriend into kinky and submissive sex games that often involved BDSM (bondage and discipline, sadism and masochism) role play.

According to the Daily Mail, Boettcher exercised such control over Martina Levato that she allowed him to carve his initials onto her thigh.

During the court proceedings Boettcher’s phone was unlocked. Police found disturbing images and videos of the couple engaged in "branding exercises".

Boettcher, who is currently married to Croatian model Gorana Boettcher Bulog, reportedly insisted on being called "master" and made Levato his sex slave after just a year of dating.

The branding he would perform on her were meant to be signs of her eternal love for him, the court heard.

Levato was also branded on her cheek with Boettcher’s initial to show her "devotion".

Well-known in Milan club scene, Boettcher would apparently visit the party scene with large sums of cash.

Police also found images of Boettcher engaged in group sex scenes with Levato and another young woman.

According to ANSA News, police found a recording on Boettcher's phone where he said that he branded Levato because a “king has to mark his cattle”.

Boettcher apparently felt that Levato’s previous lovers tainted her in some way and therefore their faces needed to be erased.

The couple were stopped after they attacked Levato's ex-boyfriend Pietro Barbini.

The pair threw hydrochloric acid on his face and hit him with a hammer.

He needed 10 skin grafts to repair his face and nose, according to the report.

The two also apparently attacked men that Levato had kissed.

Both Boettcher and Levato have been sentenced to 14 years in jail.
