WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – An 82-year-old Florida man will find out later this month if he will be serving life in prison after being convicted Monday of beating his girlfriend to death with a flashlight battery.
Back in 2010, Alfred Infosino called 911 and said he had just “killed somebody.” He told the dispatcher that he had beat his girlfriend to death with a flashlight battery and was now drinking ammonia.
When police arrived at his residence, they found 77-year-old Rita Chirel laying naked on the floor of the master bedroom in a pool of blood. Paramedics tried to revive Chirel, but she would die as a result of blunt force injuries and loss of blood.
Police had no record of ever visiting the couple, but neighbors reported that the couple had been arguing lately, Infosino saying he was thinking of moving out and Chirel had dropped him as executor of her estate.
On Monday, Infosino was convicted of second-degree murder and will be back in court later this month where he could be sentenced to life behind bars. Which could be a sentence of one hour. But whatever, in all likelihood, this guy is gonna die in prison.
