A suspect was charged on Tuesday in the brutal Park Slope slaying of a 20-year-old man who participated in a three-way tryst with the girlfriend of his alleged killer.

Gravesend resident Manos Ikonomidis was leaving the building on 16th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues where the ménage à trois occurred when Christopher Membreno, 24, and several other men wielding bats and knives ambushed him at 4:08 am on June 19, according to court documents.

Membreno and his accomplices chased Ikonomidis back into the building, where they overpowered the young man, stabbed him several times, and beat him, according to officials.

Police discovered Ikonomidis unconscious and bleeding from multiple injuries, and he was later pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital, cops said.

Ikonomidis and a 21-year-old friend were involved in a threesome with Membreno’s girlfriend at the 16th Street building, police said. But the Staten Island woman left with the other man after becoming irate when Ikonomidis began filming the sexual encounter, which prompted her to request a ride home, the New York Daily News reported, citing police sources.

The woman called Membreno upon returning home and claimed Ikonomidis raped her, said the Daily News report, but police have not uncovered any evidence to support that accusation, according to the publication.

Membreno is being charged with second degree murder, burglary, and criminal possession of a weapon.

What about the rest of the violent scum bags who attacked this guy, after Membreno's "girlfriend" claimed she was raped? As for her -- no doubt she'll be shacking up with some other upstanding citizen and banging all his friends on the side when Membreno's serving 25 years at Green Haven or some other hellhole over some misguided, idiotic, macho attempt at defending her "honor." What a f$%&ing waste.
