suspect dies

An elderly Italian farmer who had been ordered to stand retrial over a series of grisly serial sex killings known as the "Monster of Florence" murders died, police said. Pietro Pacciani, 73, was originally convicted in 1994 of the killings and then acquitted in what remains one of Italy's most sensational criminal mysteries. Initial reports said he appeared to have suffered a heart attack.
