According to Montressor, Fortunato has been making fun of him, so Montressor's plan is to punish him with Impunity. He will get revenge on Fortunato by killing him in his catacombs.
While Fortunato was drunk, Montressor chained him to the wall, and started building a niche around him, so he would suffocate and die in there.
After the niche was almost complete, Montressor left an aperture so he could see if Fortunato was ok, when he heard no answer, he figured he was dead, and closed the hole. Montressor reveals that Fortuantos bones rests in the catacombs for the next fifty years.
