Husband of Slain Boone Woman Charged With Murder
BOONE, Iowa (AP) - The husband of a slain Boone woman found in a bathroom last year has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with her death.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says 39-year-old Alexander Fazzino was arrested Sunday in the parking lot of a sporting goods store in the Kansas City area. He remains at the Lee's Summit Police Department jail on a $1.5 million bond.
The Boone Police Department found 32-year-old Emily Fazzino unresponsive on a bathroom floor on Jan. 29, 2012. Alexander Fazzino told police his wife killed herself by overdosing on prescription pills.
The Iowa Medical Examiner's Office says Emily Fazzino's remains had no sign of drug abuse or a drug overdose. Her autopsy identified several areas of trauma, including the neck, throat and head.
