Man Charged With Killing Wife For Burning Their Dinner…30 Years After The Murder

Thirty years after Verna O’Neil’s shooting death was ruled a suicide, her now 83-year-old husband has been arrested for her murder.

James O’Neil of Lake Worth, Florida was taken into custody after admitting to his daughter that he shot his wife in the head after an argument over “her excessive drinking and the fact that she had burned their dinner,” as reported in the Palm Beach Post

The O’Neil’s marriage had been an up and down affair. They were divorced in 1981 but remarried three years later. On the evening of July 23, 1987, deputies were called to their home, where they found Verna with a gunshot wound to the head and James “hysterical and hyperventilating, standing in the kitchen talking on the telephone with the 911 dispatcher,” according to a police affidavit. Verna later died at the hospital.

Brothers Caught Murdering Their Roommate After Suspicious Dirt Pile Seen In Backyard

Two New Jersey brothers were indicted on charges that they killed their roommate and buried his body in their backyard, The Newark Star-Ledger reported.

Christopher Costello, 28, and his brother, Bryan Costello, 25, were investigated after a relative of their roommate, Justin Dubois, 23, reported not hearing from him.

Police obtained a search warrant and found Dubois’s body buried in a dirt pile in the Costellos’s backyard. The home is owned by the two Costello brothers’s father.

Both Costello brothers are apparently unemployed, and the Star-Ledger reported that neighbors suspected that the house was used for drug deals. 

It is unclear, however, what the motivation was for the killing.

The Costello brothers were charged with first degree murder, second degree desecration of human remains, and third degree hindering apprehension. They have not yet entered a plea.
