Patrizia's arrest came after an anonymous tip to police in January 1997 . According to prosecutors, Patrizia—who was nicknamed the “Black Widow” in the media—had a motive to kill her husband due to the believed jealousy and resentment she had toward him at the time.
The hitman who killed Maurizio was Benedetto Ceraulo , a pizzeria owner in debt, who had been hired by Patrizia through her psychic and close friend, Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma. In 1997, Patrizia was found guilty of the murder and sentenced to 29 years in prison.
