Mourners of slain BX mom take fight for justice to Facebook

A new group page on the popular networking website Facebook features smiling pictures of Tina Adovasio, the Bronx mother of four who was found murdered earlier this month, as part of an effort to achieve justice in her murder case.

A blurb on the page proclaims that it was not created as a memorial to the slain maternity ward nurse. Instead, it says it aims to keep followers updated on the criminal murder case of Adovasio?s husband, Eddy Coello.

Titled, ?Justice for Tina Adovasio,? the page has nearly 3,000 fans. The page?s operator posts links to the latest articles about Adovasio?s allegedly abusive ex-cop husband, who has been charged with her murder.

The page has also become a forum of sorts for discussions on domestic abuse. Several posts on the page urge women in abusive relationships to seek refuge from their aggressors.

After Adovasio?s body was found in a wooded area several weeks ago, Coello told investigators that his wife had stormed out and disappeared after an argument. Prosecutors have said they have DNA and video evidence implicating him in the crime.

At a court appearance today, Coello?s lawyer announced that he will not testify before the grand jury. His next court date is set for April 29.
