Cousins of slain BX woman say husband is guilty

Two cousins of the Bronx mother who was found strangled to death in Yorktown last week say they are disgusted with her accused killer and husband Edwin Coello.

Police say Tina Adovasio's body was discovered in the woods along a section of the Taconic State Parkway. One of the responding Yorktown patrolmen was Adovasio's cousin, Mark Rapisarda.

Mark and Joe Rapisarda, both cousins of Adovasio, say they believe Coello is guilty of her murder.

Prosecutors are now saying Adovasio never left her Bronx apartment alive. They accuse Coello of beating and strangling Adovasio and then dumping her body.
