Husband Accused of Kιlling Wife After She Complained About Not Receiving a Christmas Gift

The holidays are supposed to be a time of good cheer, but crime reportsJulio Resto indicate that the holidays are also a time when many people snap.

One Boston man stands accused of stαbbing his wife to deαth with a kitchen knife after she complained about him not buying her a Christmas gift.

Julio Resto, 51, pleaded not guilty mυrdering his 42 year old wife, Gloria.

According to police, Resto first attempted to strαngle his wife before grabbing the knife and stαbbing her. The incident occurred in the couple’s apartment and Gloria was reportedly lying in bed at the time of the attαck.

Resto allegedly told police that his wife was upset over not receiving a Christmas gift from him and began staying with friends on December 26. She sent him a text on December 30 advising of her plans to move out of their home.

The wife returned to their shared home later that night and was kιlled after refusing to speak to her husband.

Resto attempted to kιll himself by trapping carbon monoxide poisoning inside his vehicle but failed.

Resto eventually ran into Waltham police headquarters, screaming, “Shoot me. I have nothing to live for. I just kιlled my wife.”

After officers searched the man’s home, they found his son asleep and unharmed, along with the wife’s body.

Family of the victim say she was a loving mother of two.

“She did a lot for everybody. She was just always there for us. Right now we all need our privacy,” the victim’s aunt said.

  1. WOW! This is so sad. I wonder if they were having financial issues that did not allow him to purchase a gift? Also, I wonder why she handled it by leaving home to stay with someone else, simply because she did not receive a gift from him? People are very sensitive during these times of hardship.

    Everyone needs to take heed and really think about the more important things we need as a family. My condolences to the family members left to sort this out. So sad!

  2. Wow!

  3. Oh, after reading my earlier post, I want to make clear that I am not saying the victim is at fault. I was simply thinking out loud as a wife of 21 years who has experienced times when we did not give gifts to each other.

  4. Why do these dumb women choose garbage can guys like this? I just don't get it.

  5. Well Mr Resto….you can now spend the rest of your Christmases looking at some dude’s crusty ass! Pathetic excuse of a man!
