Man Accused Of Killing Ex-Wife's Lover Returns To Court


Court proceedings will continue next year involving a man accused of killing one and shooting at two others.

Bruce Nozolino is charged with the 2008 murder of Richard Schreiner, the man who, according to court documents, was having an affair with Nozolino's wife, causing the pair to divorce in 2002.

In addition, Nozolino has been accused of attempted first degree murder for shooting his ex-wife’s divorce attorney, John Ciccolella in 2002. Ciccolella was hired by Nozolino's wife to handle the divorce. He was in his office on January 23, 2002 when he was shot in the head. He lost his right eye but survived the shooting.

11 News was in court Friday for his arraignment hearing as prosecutors and Nozolino's defense heard from two detectives on the stand, including one from the Violent Crimes unit.

Testimony was cut short, and will resume on January 6.

Nozolino is currently being held on a $1 million bond.

    Why did it take six years for the police to charge him for shooting the divorce attorney?
