Michigan Man Accused Of Killing His Wife During Shootout Arrested: Report
A Michigan man who police say murdered his wife is in custody, according to Macomb Daily.
Matthew Louis Mollicone, 46, is accused of killing his wife, Kimberly Ann Mollicone, 49.
Mollicone is charged with eight felony counts including murder, which carries a punishment of life imprisonment; four counts of felony firearm; one count of assault with intent to murder; one count of carrying a weapon with unlawful and dangerous intent; and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.
He has pleaded not guilty, Macomb Daily reported. He is being held without bond.
According to police Macomb County Sheriff's deputies went to a residence in the 62000 block of North Avenue on July 12 for the report of a shooting at approximately 9;30 p.m. Dispatch received multiple 911 calls about a chaotic situation, according to Macomb Daily.
“I need somebody here right now!” a woman screamed as the sound of several shots being fired can be heard in the background. “Somebody is shooting at my house! My brother is hit!”
Mollicone also called 911 and said a man “came out of his house and shot my wife."
When police arrived, they found Kimberly Mollicone's body inside a vehicle outside the home. She was pronounced dead on scene, Macomb Daily reported. Matthew Mollicone was outside telling police someone had shot his wife.
Officers found a gun near the vehicle and arrested Matthew Mollicone because they believed he was the shooter. A man who reported being shot in the leg inside the house was also arrested as an investigation is pending, according to Macomb Daily.
Police determined that there were issues of infidelity between Kimberly Mollicone and the man who was shot in the leg. Officers say the Mollicones drove to the man's house, where he was outside cooking on a grill, according to Macomb Daily.
A verbal argument turned into a shootout between Matthew Mollicone and the other man. Mollicone struck the other man in the leg and then chased him. Mollicone then retrieved another weapon from the home, Macomb Daily reported.
As Matthew and Kimberly Mollicone got in the vehicle and backed out of the driveway, more fire was exchanged, and Kimberly was struck near the neck and died. Three adults and two children in the home were taken out uninjured, according to Macomb Daily.
Mollicone has a hearing scheduled for July 29.
