Anna Maria Tolomello, 48, shot and killed Giovanni Gallina, 65, in the home they shared. Tolomello and Gallina were long-term romantic partners, as well as co-owners of Pina's Pizza in New Britain, PA. Tolomello wrapped Gallina's body in a blue tarp and left it in a bedroom, while paying a contractor to dig a hole in her driveway. The body was discovered when police came with a search warrant, after Gallina's son reported him missing. Tolomello led police to the body and claimed that the shooting was self-defense. Tolomello allegedly disposed of evidence in the dumpster behind the pizzeria. At the time of writing, she had been charged with homicide.
