The murder trial of a man accused of killing the ex-wife of former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent got underway on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Superior Court in Hartford, Connecticut, according to the Associated Press.Police arrested Gregory McArthur, 41, on Sept. 2, 2000, and charged him with the January 1998 murder of Annemarie Cusano. Cusano worked as a secretary and moonlighted for an escort service when she was killed, according to court documents. After his extradition from a Massachusetts prison, McArthur led police to a wooded area in Suffield where they found Cusano's remains, police said. Hartford Police Detective James Rovella testified in October 2000 that McArthur confessed to strangling Cusano. In January 1998, police said Cusano went to an appointment at McArthur's rooming house in Hartford's West End. Her car was found near the rooming house and a bag of bloody clothing was found in his room. Just months before the 42-year-old woman's disappearance, McArthur was released from prison after serving six years on sexual assault charges. After Cusano disappeared, McArthur was jailed in Massachusetts on an unrelated charge. After his extradition from Massachusetts, McArthur led police to a wooded area in Suffield where they found Cusano's remains, police said. McArthur told investigators he fought Cusano in his apartment and choked her after she threatened him with a knife. McArthur, who has pleaded innocent, is charged with capital felony, murder, felony murder, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree robbery. (Thanks: fullshred)
