Officials say Vince Marinello, a former New Orleans sportscaster who was convicted of killing his wife, has passed away.
The Dixon Correctional Center confirmed yesterday that the 82-year-old Marinello died on February 21st from natural causes while serving a life sentence.
Marinello was convicted of murdering his estranged wife in 2006 by using an elaborate disguise and then trying to create an alibi by driving to Mississippi.
