Murder in a Small Big Town

Friday, February 5, 2010, 15:41 EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

This is the kind of thing you don’t want happening in your quiet suburban community, but it happened in my town yesterday:

At 12:54 p.m. police received a 911 call from Keith Rosiello, 44, stating that he had an altercation with his wife at their home and she was no longer breathing.

When police arrived to the home on 32 Deerfield Road, Maureen Rosiello, also 44, was not breathing and she was pronounced dead on the scene.

Rosiello was taken to the Shrewsbury Police Department where he was charged with murder.

As is so often the case, neighbors were taken by surprise:

Alan McDonald and his wife, Grace, live next door to the Rosiello home, and said the couple seemed happy and friendly. Mr. McDonald said he believed Mr. Rosiello ran his own business, but could not recall what type of business it was. He said Mr. Rosiello grew up in Shrewsbury, and said Ms. Rosiello stayed at home with the children.

“They’re a quiet, regular couple,” Mr. McDonald said.

It’s always the quiet ones, isn’t it?

But seriously, this is the first homicide in Shrewsbury since a man strangled his estranged wife and then took his own life six years ago.
