Anthony Ponticelli Case

Anthony Ponticelli owed Nick and Ralph Grandinetti money for cocaine so he hatched a plan to lure the brothers into a car to drive to a back road, away from their home, where he murdered them with a gun he had borrowed from a friend.   Ponticelli shot Ralph once in the head and Nick twice in the head and later abandoned them to die in the car.   Ralph died from the gunshot wound within one or two minutes of being shot.  

Nick was found a day later, curled up on the floorboard in the front of the car, covered in blood, gasping for air, and kicking his foot.   Nick felt pain until he became comatose, and later died from cardiac arrest secondary to the gunshot wounds.   In addition to his gunshot wounds, Nick suffered bruises to the back and side of his head, which were consistent with blunt force trauma, and a burn of his right ear.
