Life in prison for Ridgefield florist in partner's murder - Rutherford Daily VoiceTuesday, March 19, 2019
Battinelli during the trial as a “cold, calculating” hunter who killed Murphy, his partner of 20 years, with a .22-caliber rifle in their G&M Wholesale Flowers shop on Midland Avenue in January 2010. Murphy was on the verge of discovering that Battinelli had stolen $81,883 from him — in part, by taking payments in cash — when he was killed, she said. Neary insisted authorities rushed to judgment and got the wrong man — and pointed instead to one of their drivers. A delivery man for the business found Murphy’s body on Jan. 6, 2010 and “literally ran across Midland Avenue to Garfield Police headquarters across the street,” Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time. Neary told the jurors that the driver had immigration issues and was in hot water with Murphy for a series of flat tires. Murphy had questioned him about the flats that morning before he left to take a delivery to Glen Rock, he noted. Battinelli not only had “motive, means and opportunity” — he was the only person left in the building with Murphy when the driver and another left that morning, Grootenboer countered. After the shooting, she said, Battinelli drove across town to the City Hall on a “non-emergency errand” to buy parking passes, she said. “By his own admission, Thomas Battinelli was the last person to see Michael Murphy,” the prosecutor said. “It didn’t take long for Battinelli, an experienced hunter, to kill his unsuspecting friend.” A Garfield police dispatcher later testified that Battinelli was still at the City Hall when they called him to report that Murphy had been found dead. The murder weapon was found in the walk-in refrigerator at G&M under a pile of decorative branches, Grootenboer said. Battinelli bought the Browning .22 lever-action rifle at Ramsey Outdoor, she told jurors. When a Garfield police sergeant found it, she said, “the trigger was in the locked back position indicating it had been fired. It had one spent .22 caliber shell casing inside, and one .22 caliber bullet. “The bullet had a “B” stamp on the bottom of it. On January 6, 2010 when investigators searched Thomas Battinelli’s house, they found the same ammunition there.” Subsequent testing turned up Battinelli’s right, middle fingerprint on the gun. During his closing arguments, Neary ( left ) told jurors: “The fact it is Tom Battinelli’s gun and fingerprints isn’t proof.” STORY / PHOTOS: Mary K.

He also hopes to eventually open a store at the farm.To read the 435 story, visit 435mag.com. http://www.tonganoxiemirror.com/news/2018/jul/11/agribusiness-accolades-grinter-farms-featured-coun/
