(ANSA) – Rome, May 9 – A 50-year-old man was taken into
custody Thursday in relation to the killing of 30-year old
Alessandra Iacullo last Thursday in the Dragona neighbourhood of
Ostia, a seaside town outside of Rome.
The man had allegedly been romantically involved with the
young woman, and prosecutors are investigating him for homicide.
Iacullo was found stabbed and lying on a street in the
Italian coastal town and later died from wounds to the neck.
The killing may have taken place after a violent argument
with the man, according to prosecution sources.
Iacullo’s death is the latest in a series of violent female
deaths to have plagued Italy. A third of women in Italy reported
being victims of serious domestic violence, according to a 2012
UN report citing data from Italian statistics agency ISTAT.
According to the report, 127 women were murdered by men in
Italy in 2010, often as a result of "honor, men's unemployment
or jealousy".
