Christopher Piantedosi, 39, has been charged in the stabbing death of his girlfriend after he chased her into a bedroom and stabbed her 34 times, an attack that was witnessed by a teenager via iPad Chat software.
Christopher’s daughter was talking to a friend video on an iPad Video chat when she left the room to investigate an argument that was occurring between the couple. Moment later Christopher chased girlfriend, Kirsten Pulisciano, 38, into his daughters bedroom and shouted “you gotta die.”
Middlesex County Assistant District Attorney Nicole Allain explained the witnesses story:
“He could hear the victim saying, ‘Please, please.’ He could hear the daughter yelling, ‘No. No.’ He then heard the defendant say, ‘You gotta die. You gotta die.’ He then heard the victim say, ‘Chris, please stop. I love you’ and then the defendant began stabbing Kristen numerous times.”
Piantedosi claims he suffers from bipolar disorder and the judge overseeing the case decided to hold him without bail.
This isn’t the first time Piantedosi has been in trouble with the law, he became known as the “remorseful robber” after he stole a woman’s wallet, GPS and other items last year, only to return her belongings with an extra $10 and an apology note for his actions that was signed “stupid.”
Piantedosi claims that he attempted to commit suicide on April 29 because of his disorder and that he had been living with his parents for the past six weeks.
After killing his girlfriend Piantedosi attempted to flee the scene, throwing his cell phone and bloody clothes in a dumpster in Leominster, Massachusetts. After one night on the run he turned himself in to Massachusetts State Police.
When police searched the killers car they found two notes that read:
“Unarmed. Just have to sleep.” and “I put knife on table. Continued talking. She grabbed again. I grabbed a bigger one. Went at it in front of daughter. No, no, n0, no.”
As expected the remorseful robber has been charged with murder.
