Lawyer: Ex-cop accused of killing BX wife to plead not guilty

The lawyer for the former police officer accused of killing his wife says his client plans to plead not guilty to second-degree murder charges.

Police say Tina Adovasio was found strangled to death along a section of the Taconic State Parkway last week.

Adovasio's husband, Edward Coello, is charged with second-degree murder in her death.

Police say Coello has a history of domestic violence and that Adovasio had filed for a restraining order against Coello, but she was killed before it was served.
