These poor children. They deserve a safe and loving home to
live in after such a brutal killing of their mother at the hands
of their father. Now they live with his brother who seems to have
come from the same mold. What's left for them, state foster
care?

A good follow-up story would report on how and from where this individual was able to obtain "fully automatic sub-machine guns."

Maternal relatives? Close family friends? Coaches? Teachers? Any of these folks can apply for guardianship of these kids through Probate Court. Foster care is not the only option if any of these folks can pass a background check, home study and are willing to keep the kids together.

This guy is obviously a felon, I must have missed what he did. I'm just wondering how he could get custody as a felon.
Sounds like that family has major mental issues.

Michael was a retired
State Trooper, and Bruce is a Retired Waterbury cop and Judicial Marshal.. Donna always knew
Michael was going to kill her.. History was going to repeat itself... I'm sure, Donna's children choose to live with Bruce and Christine,, hopefully they will change thier minds......The Judicial system finally did something right for a change.....

Mrs Bochicchio has certainly pointed out the failure to enforce the law. Code Blue prevails in all cases in Corrupticut. This poor woman had to go a long way to get a simple restraining order enforced. Didn't the Staties notice he did not send in his permit? If I hadn't sent in mine when so ordered I'd bet I would have had a visit in a very short time. The arrogance of the police show thru time & time again.

I believe what needs to happen is that Current and Retired officers of the law need to have psych evaluations on a regular basis. So they can stop killing their family members and get help for themselves.

God Bless the children that they are portected from all harm mental and physical.

Police officers need to be evaluated the whole time they are on the force and off.

What a terrfying situation for the children. The ages are not mentioned, but I'm sure they must be so scared right now. Hopefully the family will all help to reassure them and give them some stability in their lives. Hope things work out and my prayers for them.

Talk about genetic predisposition. I heard Bruce Bochicchio testify for his brother Michael at his divorce. Same slimy, sociopathic, scary personality. This is no surprise. How he got custody of those children is beyond comprehension.

He was not in a fight with his son Anthony, he was in a fight with his son Geoffrey. After Geoffrey pressed charges, he was kicked out of his house and his car was taken from him halfway through his senior year at Wamogo High School. He moved in with his friends family and has successfully completed his senior year. Last week he moved to California to live with his grandparents where he will hopefully be safe. He plans to go to college in CA. I am very proud of him.

Doesn't this story scream "medical situation". Clearly Bruce and his brother are/were predisposed to some sort of inability to handle stress, likely a chemically caused condition related to the brain. The answer to this problem is not charges and jail, but medical intervention, court ordered if necessary.

There are a total of 6 children living in that house. They have all been mistreated for years. I am not surprised with Bruces actions. It is unfortunate that the mother did not run with those children long ago. I guess he needed to abuse her before she would do something. HUH!! Still not surprised

Thank you for the update. It's good to know that he graduated HS and living with people who love him. I wish him the best of luck and lots of love.
