The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office in N.J. has confirmed skeletal remains found in a suitcase in a Staten Island, N.Y. pond belong to 27-year-old Amy Giordano.
Police say the discovery of the bones came after charges were issued against 33-year-old Rosario DiGirolamo and another man, 43-year-old John A. Russo, Jr. from Staten Island. Cops say DiGirolamo has been charged with Amy's murder and tampering with evidence, and Russo has been charged with tampering with evidence. Cops say Russo helped lead investigators to the Staten Island pond where the suitcase filled with bones was found.
DiGirolamo turned himself in to the Delaware State Police after going on the lam for almost two months. DiGirolamo was charged with child abandonment and reckless endangerment after cops say his 11-month-old son, Michael DiGirolamo, was found abandoned on a curb outside Christiana Hospital in Newark, Del.
DiGirolamo pleaded guilty to the charges in November 2007 -- but now faces the more serious charges of murder and tampering with evidence. If convicted, Russo faces a maximum sentence of 18 months, while DiGirolamo would face 30 years to life in prison.
