20 Years for Roberta Ragusa’s Murderer

Antonio Logli, the husband of Roberta Ragusa, a mother of two who disappeared into thin air on the night of January 13 – 14, 2012, has been convicted of his wife’s murder, receiving a 20-year jail sentence which he plans to appeal.

According to the prosecutor, Roberta had discovered that her husband had a long-term, serious relationship with the children’s former babysitter, Sara Calzolaio, who later worked as an employee in the couple’s co-owned driving school.  According to an eyewitness, in the midst of an argument, Roberta was forced by her husband to get in their car in front of their home located near San Giuliano Terme in the province of Pisa, which is the last time she was seen in public.

Antonio Logli has always stuck to his version of the facts:  Roberta supposedly hit her head in a minor domestic accident, and suffering from amnesia, wandered away while he and the family were sleeping.  Her body has never been found.  For a full report in Italian, visit Florence’s La Repubblica news site.
