Baroni reportedly flagged down police and told them he got into a drunken brawl with his girlfriend after discovering she’d slept with another man.
According to the site, the dispute allegedly became physical, with Baroni saying he grabbed his girlfriend’s arms and threw her in the shower in their room, where she banged her head.
Baroni reportedly stated that his partner was unable to get out of the tub on her own, so he assisted her.
According to the report, she then claimed to be chilly and begged Baroni to place her in the bed in their room, where she urged him to go out and purchase smokes and alcohol.
When he returned to the room, Baroni reportedly told police that he thought his girlfriend was sleeping. Baroni was arrested and is presently being detained in jail for the suspected murder.
