I'm not crazy, I just wanted to kill the evil eye. The eye troubles me no more.
I am sick of Fortunato's arrogance. He had insulted me for the last time, and now I vow revenge.
The narrator in the Tell Tale Heart's actions were justified, because he was mentally ill. Montresor however killed Fortunato over a child-like dispute, and therefore his actions were not justified.
"but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. . . At length I would be avenged." (Poe, 866)
"I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within. There came forth in return only a jingling of the bells. My heart grew sick; it was the dampness or the catacombs that made it so" (Poe, 870)
"Indeed, the illness only made my mind, my feelings, my senses stronger, more powerful. . . I heard sounds from heaven; and I heard sounds from hell!" (Poe, 64)
"I pointed at the boards and cried, 'Yes! Yes, I killed him. Pull up the boards and you shall see! I killed him. But why does his heart not stop beating?! Why does it not stop!?'" (Poe, 67)
