A Long Island, N.Y., man has been indicted on a murder charge for stabbing his wife “multiple times with a chef’s knife, killing her,” after she told her sister that she wanted to divorce her husband, the prosecutor said.


Danielle DeLuca was 42 years old.


On Monday, Anthony Paruolo, 37, was arraigned on charges including second-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child, Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly said in a statement. He is accused of killing his wife, Danielle DeLuca on Oct. 6.

He pleaded not guilty and was sent back to jail without bail.

“With their child in a neighboring bedroom, the defendant allegedly brutally attacked his wife, stabbing her multiple times with a chef’s knife, killing her,” Donnelly said in the statement.

“Earlier that evening, the victim allegedly called her sister to tell her that she and the defendant would be divorcing. This horrendous crime has left a child without a mother. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family as we prosecute this case,” Donnelly said.

Paolo, a sanitation worker in the Town of Hempstead, is accused of killing his wife, a social worker, just hours after a counseling session, Newsday reports.

At about 11:40 p.m. that night, the prosecutor said that Nassau County Police Department officers responded to a call about an alleged domestic disturbance at the defendant’s North Bellmore home.

Responding officers found Danielle DeLuca dead in a pool of blood. A chef’s knife approximately 13 inches long was in her neck, and she had stab wounds to her head, neck, and torso.

The prosecutor said that the couple’s 8-year-old child was found unharmed in another bedroom.

Later that afternoon, the couple took part in a virtual counseling session.

During a heated argument later on, at about 10:30 p.m., Danielle DeLuca allegedly threatened to take their son and go after her husband’s finances “for everything you got,” court records show, Newsday reports.

Anthony Bartolo allegedly told police that when he heard this, he got so angry that he grabbed a knife from the kitchen and attacked his wife, court records show, Newsday reports.

If convicted, Paruolo faces up to 25 years to life in prison. He is scheduled to return to court on December 15.
