DiGirolamo Appeals Murder Conviction
He pled guilty earlier this year to a 2007 killing.
The man who pled guilty to killing his Hightstown mistress in 2007 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison, is claiming evidence was improperly admitted and wants his conviction overturned, according to a report from The Trenton Times.
Rosario DiGirolamo, 36, admitted to striking Amy Giordano, 27 with a hammer and killing her during an argument on June 8, 2007 in her apartment above the former Slowdown Café. DiGirolamo later abandoned their child, Michael, in a parking lot of a Delaware hospital.
DiGirolamo argues that the way the handsaw was tested prevented the defense from proving it was never used, and the appeal also says the Internet searches should not have been admitted into evidence, The Trenton Times report said.
One of the pieces of evidence in the trial included saved Google searches for the words "martial arts lethal blows to the back of the head" made on June 4, 6 and 7, days before the killing.
