Trial of man charged with killing his wife in 2012 is set to begin next month


DECORAH, Iowa — The high-profile trial of a man charged with killing his wife in 2012 is scheduled to begin next month.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1PeCYjB ) 41-year-old Alexander Fazzino's trial is scheduled to begin on Feb. 22 and could last up to three weeks. It was delayed last year, so Fazzino could help his daughter recover from a bone marrow transplant.

Fazzino is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Emily Fazzino, who was found dead on a bathroom floor at the couple's Boone home in January 2012. Authorities say Fazzino killed his wife because she wanted to divorce him.

The case has received significant attention because 32-year-old Emily Fazzino's grandfather founded the Fareway Stores grocery chain.
