Man charged in slaying of Dubuque woman

Posted: Updated:

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A 36-year-old man has been accused of killing a woman he just met hours earlier in Dubuque.

Court records say Michael Piantieri was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree murder. Police say he killed 42-year-old Beverly Puccio, who was found dead inside her home late Sunday night. The records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for Piantieri.

The records say surveillance video showed Puccio and Piantieri at a bar Saturday evening and that they left about 8 p.m. in a cab that took them to her home. The records say he denied going into Puccio's home.
