Gucci Ex-Wife Arrested

ROME, Italy -- Italian police arrested five people in Milan and Naples on Friday, including the first wife of Maurizio Gucci, heir to the Gucci fashion empire, in connection with the designer's murder two years ago.


Judicial sources said Patrizia Reggiani Martinelli, who is living in Switzerland, ordered the 1995 killing of her late husband.


Police also arrested a fortune-teller, who Martinelli regularly consulted, and a hotel porter, both suspected of helping Martinelli commit the murder.
