Nude housekeeper, Thomas Cordero, 41, is on trial for stabbing Manhattan paralegal John Conley, 50, to death.  In 2001, Conley hired Cordero, who advertised his naked house cleaning services on Rentboy.com.

Cordero told police that his cleaning seemed to turn Conley on, and the housekeeping visit quickly turned into a sexual encounter.

“He wanted to get down to business,” Cordera said in a recorded confession. “He wanted to see my body.”

As things progressed, Cordera said Conley “got too rough” in bed and pulled out a knife.

When Cordera attempted to leave, he said Conley would not allow him to.

“I felt threatened, so I grabbed the knife from him and hit him in the back of the head,” he claimed.

Reportedly, as Conley lay dying, Cordera took $40 from his wallet “per our agreement,” and left.

The nude maid told police officers his body must have gotten his hirer worked up.

“It’s because I have a nice ass.”

Cordera was identified by surveillance footage. If convicted, he faces 25 years to life in prison.
