According to reports, prosecutors suspect Marcello began planning the murder in early November after discovering his wife was having an affair during a trip to Disney World.

Prosecutors claim Marcello looked for nations where he couldn’t be extradited for homicide.

Christopher Gioe, a defense attorney, claimed there could be constitutional difficulties with Marcello’s detention.

According to ABC, Gioe said, “The first time he was given an attorney was here at the courthouse,”

“He’s informed me that he has asked for an attorney from the beginning of this investigation and he was denied the entire time.”

He added, “There’s certainly going to be an investigation conducted by the defense in this case and we’re certainly going to proceed forward with a trial in this manner.”

Melissa Molinari’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office in Suffolk County, where an autopsy will be performed.
