Domestic Abuse Fuels Arson Fraud And Murder

Antonetta Baldassarre is facing up to 15 years in jail after she pled guilty to killing her 80-year-old husband in 2014.

Ms. Baldassarre admitted to the Staten Island D.A. that she beat her husband to death with a crowbar and placed his body in the bathtub before she staged her Staten Island home to look like an arsonist had struck.

Ms. Baldassarre said she killed her 80-year-old husband because she was tired of his constant physical abuse.

 Baldassarre confessed that she had bound herself to corroborate her false arson claim.
