WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The New Hanover County District Attorney’s office says the wife of a man killed last year has now been charged with his death.
Mary Douglass Bruno was arrested this morning on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in connection with the death of Carmine Anthony Bruno in January 2010. Mary Bruno was previously charged with accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.
The DA’s office says in a statement that Mary Bruno’s arrest is based on evidence collected over the last several months and information from the trial of Dennis Benjamin Roy. A jury convicted Roy last week for the baseball bat beating death of Carmine Bruno. A judge sentenced Roy to life in prison.
Mary Bruno is set to make her first court appearance this afternoon.
