Peter Ronchi, 48, charged with two counts of first degree murder

October 12, 2012

The form Taft Street resident is charged with first degree murder of his 42-year-old pregnant girlfriend. He is accused of stabbing her 15 times and leaving her to bleed to death. Apparently she told him that he was not the father and that set him off.1 Ronchi then took off for Connecticut, but eventually turned himself in and confessed. But now he has pleaded not guilty to the murders, his lawyers citing mental illness. Prosecutors will build a case of deadly premeditation with proof that Ronchi planned the crime and methodically carried it out.
