A New York court said that it has sentenced a Canadian prostitute, Angelina Barini, to 30 years in jail for causing the drug-overdose deaths of four people, including Italian chef Andrea Zamperoni.
The 33-year chef for Cipriani Dolci was found dead in a motel room in the Queens district of the city in August 2019. Barini, 43, was found guilty of giving him a cocktail of narcotics, including a fatal dose of fentanyl,in order to rob him while he was unconscious. “The defendant drugged and killed multiple people for a few quick dollars,” said Breon Peace, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “She stole their personal belongings while they lay unconscious dying from the lethal drugs she gave them. “The defendant’s substantial prison sentence is warranted by her shocking disregard for human life. “Hopefully, today’s sentence will bring some solace to the victims’ families and serve as a warning to future perpetrators that there are significant consequences to these horrific crimes”.
