Alfonso Caruana told me: ‘It’s looking like you, for reasons you did not, and instead for killing a policeman with his pregnant wife.” Oreste Pagano was fired during the trial of the double murder of police officer Nino Agostino and his wife Ida Castelluccio, and was shot dead on August 5, 1989. The trial was held in the bunker of Ucciardone Prison, with Sergio Glotto (Judge Monica Summerdino) presiding over the court. Defendants in the case, employer Guidano Scoto (accused of match-fixing double murder) and Francesco Pavlo Rissudo, were charged with aiding and abetting. Life imprisonment has been imposed and the appeal process is ongoing.
