Man kills ex on eve of separation (3)

At Montepulciano, in house where woman was carer

(ANSA) - Siena, July 14 - An Italian man stabbed his ex-wife to death in the Montepulciano house she was working as a carer in Thursday night, on the eve of a hearing in separation proceedings. The 56-year-old factory worker snatched up a kitchen knife and pursued his ex, a 42-year-old Romanian, through the house before inflicting wounds from which she died in hospital, police said.
    After long talks over the phone, the man, originally from Catania but resident in Chiusi, agreed to give himself up at the local Carabinieri barracks. Montepulciano Mayor Andrea Rossi said "the man was known to social services, he'd been employed on socially useful work schemes on more than one occasion".
