A 47-year-old Providence man accused of bludgeoning his wife to death with a hammer has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to life in prison. Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said Constantino Nardolillo pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Wednesday in Superior Court. The judge sentenced him to life for the January 2010 killing of Ann Marie Nardolillo. Prosecutors said Constantino Nardolillo beat his wife with a hammer and left her body for a relative to discover.
