Man Strangles Ex, Dumps Body In Drum Filled With Concrete

Man Strangles Ex, Dumps Body In Drum Filled With ConcreteDANBURY, Conn. — A 29-year-old man has pleaded guilty to strangling his ex-girlfriend and dumping her body in a drum he filled with concrete. Daniel Archiere of Danbury will be sentenced to 33 years in prison on a murder charge May 8, under the terms of a plea bargain agreed to Thursday at Danbury Superior Court. Police said Archiere confessed to the Aug. 1 killing of 26-year-old Danielle Piazza. He told authorities that he and Piazza had a history of domestic disputes and that they had been arguing more frequently before he killed her in a car in Danbury. Archiere told police that Piazza had tried to keep him from seeing their 4-year-old daughter. Archiere appeared relaxed at Thursday’s proceeding. He winked and smiled at his aunt in the front row of the courtroom as he walked in from the lockup area. He winked at her again while being taken back to the lockup, the newspaper reported. Piazza’s sister and aunt broke down as prosecutor Tony Bochicchio provided details of the killing. Piazza was last seen Aug. 1, when she and her daughter left the Waterbury apartment she shared with her mother. She planned to go to Waterbury Superior Court with Archiere, who had agreed to enroll in a family violence education program. Archiere returned to Piazza’s home later that day, telling her mother he had dropped her off at a Waterbury nail salon. Police said after Archiere strangled Piazza, he dragged her into the woods behind his friend Eric Revell’s home in Danbury. He then took the child to Waterbury. Authorities believe he returned later with a barrel and concrete and packed Piazza’s body inside. Cases remain pending against Revell, 22, and his girlfriend, Nichole Considine, 19, who were arrested in connection with the killing. Revell pleaded guilty in March to hindering prosecution for helping conceal Piazza’s body. He faces up to 15 years in prison. Considine was charged with giving false statements about her boyfriend’s role in the crime. She has agreed to tell police what she knows in exchange for a favorable deal. Prosecutors indicated they will recommend three years of probation.
