Zymequest Inc. COO Keith Rosiello was charged with murdering his wife in their Shrewsbury, Mass., home, according to news reports.
Rosiello, 44, was arrested Jan. 4 and charged with one count of murder in Westborough District Court.
Rosiello called police to his home in Shrewsbury, Mass., on the afternoon of Feb. 4, where they found his wife Maureen Rosiello, 38, on the living room sofa, “deceased and showed obvious signs of traumatic injuries,” according to a police report.
Rosiello allegedly told police his wife had stopped breathing following an argument. He was arrested and later charged with murder, according to the Worcester Telegram and Gazette.
Rosiello’s sister Lisa Ricardo was also charged with accessory to murder, after she allegedly helped Rosiello cover up the crime, according to police.
Rosiello’s two children, ages 12 and 6, were said to be in the house at the time of the attack, but had been staying with Ricardo after that.
