Italy - Four people found murdered in burning Como home, 11 Dec 2006
ROME — An Italian couple who reportedly could not stand a toddler's persistent crying have been arrested for killing the child, his mother, grandmother and a neighbor in a gruesome case which has shaken Italy.
Prosecutors in the northern lakeside town of Como have told reporters that the couple, Rosa Bazzi and Olindo Romano, had confessed to the slayings, and that they would seek their trial for premeditated murder and other crimes, including setting the murder scene on fire to try to destroy the bodies.

My stepmother and her husband just got back from Lake Como a few months ago--Its a pretty stunning place---cannot believe such a horrible crime took place there--however there may be more to this story than we know--they may have been feuding for years about other things--just like that guy who killed his neighbor in New York cuz his wife told him his daughter was molested--or the guy who was a computer genius here in Florida who fought with his neighbors so much he put arsenic in their coca-cola bottles and the mother died(he is now on death row)---Still, this Italian case was a family massacre, sort of the like the vicious vendettas in Sicily from 20 and 30 years ago--Some small villages in Sicily have very few inhabitants because of this--About 30 years ago, a reporter walked into a village there and wondered where everybody was--a single old man answered his question: "Vendettas"
