Man charged in slaying of Italian tourist in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arkansas man was charged Friday in the shooting death of an Italian tourist last week.
According to the Little Rock Police Department, Andre Jackson, 35, was arrested Friday at a Super 7 motel and charged with capital murder in the slaying of Carlo Marigliano, 31, a Naples taxi driver who was driving through Arkansas on his way to Arizona. 
Marigliano, a married father of two, had been traveling with friends in the U.S. for about a month before he left the group to visit other areas, his family said.
 “This is a good thing, we have confidence in the Little Rock Police Department,” Gianni Sulmonte, Marigliano’s cousin, said a statement. “This is the beginning of bringing closure legally and to our family.”
According to police spokesperson Lt. Steven McClanahan, Marigliano was shot and then crashed his vehicle into the side of an apartment building in Little Rock on July 28.
Police said it’s unclear how Jackson and Marigliano crossed paths or what may have led to the shooting.
Marigliano was hoping to make the U.S. his new home, according to Sulmonte.
“It’s a shame the place where he wanted to build his family, bring his wife with his children, is the place where it comes to an end,” Sulmonte told KTHV.
Little Rock police spokesman Steve Moore told The Associated Press that Jackson wasn’t a resident of the Berkley Apartments complex where Marigliano was found dead. A woman who answered the phone at the complex said management wouldn’t be commenting on the case.
Investigators said they’re also looking for a second suspect, a 31-year-old woman. Moore said the woman also doesn’t live at the apartment complex.
