News Round-up

Victor Newman mentioned in murder trial
The second-degree murder trial of Vince Marinello ended Friday evening after some six hours of testimony from the former sportscaster and talk radio personality. Marinello's appearance on the stand ended days of speculation about whether he would testify in his own defense. He is accused of gunning down his estranged wife, Liz Marinello, 45, on Aug. 31, 2006, in the parking lot of an Old Metairie office building.

He admitted to being embarrassed during the trial because knowledge of his wearing hairpieces since the 1970s was made public. "This is very difficult, I'm telling you," he said at one point.

He acknowledged buying a fake mustache, but as a gag in the wake of his purchasing new hair pieces. Detectives allege he bought it as part of a disguise to conceal his identity when he shot Liz Marinello.

That hairpiece was parted down the middle, much like his divorce attorney David Courcelle styles his hair, Marinello testified. Marinello recounted their conversation.

"'Look, David, I've got the David Courcelle look,'" he testified. "I'll get a mustache and look like Victor Newman,'" a character on the television soap, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS."
