Another crime in Mastic - murder charges.

There were reasons that a Suffolk County homicide detective focused on only one man as the suspect in the death of a Mastic woman two years ago, even with several former boyfriends to consider, the detective testified Friday.

Unlike the ex-boyfriends, only Guenter Wende spent hours staring at Laura Pizzini at her job and at a bar she liked to go to, Det. Michael Mahan testified before Suffolk County Court Judge Barbara Kahn. Only Wende had avoided talking to police after Pizzini was stabbed to death in her kitchen, he said. And Wende, 44, also of Mastic was the only man whom Pizzini, 25, had told friends to look at if anything bad ever happened to her, he said.

But Wende's attorney, Jason Bassett, of Central Islip, suggested during his cross-examination that not only was Mahan too hasty in focusing on Wende, but that he beat a false confession out of him to bolster an otherwise weak case.

"Isn't it a fact, detective, that you knew to make an arrest, you needed a confession because there was no physical evidence" linking Wende to the October 2009 killing, Bassett asked.

"I knew there was no physical evidence," Mahan replied.

There were no fingerprints or DNA from Wende in Pizzini's apartment, and no blood of hers was found on anything belonging to him.

"You slapped Mr. Wende repeatedly that night, did you not?" Bassett asked later.

"That never happened," Mahan said.

"You banged his head against the wall, right?" Bassett said.

"No," Mahan replied.

Earlier in the trial, Det. Sue Nolan testified that a grief stricken Wende hit himself in the head after he confessed to her.

During questioning by Assistant District Attorney Robert Biancavilla, Mahan said Wende initially denied any romantic interest in Pizzini and said he cared for her "like a daughter." He said he didn't have time to pursue a relationship with her, although he said his work was slower than usual.

You killed my step-daughter. You have caused nothing but pain. I hope you spend the rest of your miserable life in misery. You should have taken your own life instead of Laura's. Karma is a bitch.

I agree, the crime rate is not as high as other areas like Roosevelt, Huntington Station, Central Islip, Riverhead. There is crime all over. This poster is a serial troll, never set foot on Long Island I'm thinking. This could have happened anywhere.

Rest in Peace Laura. I hope her family can begin their healing.

He should get the death penalty. Her murder still haunts my son and is the reason her ex old boyfriend and long time friend hung himself a month to the day of her murder whom my son was the one to find and has still haunts my son. Hope he gets what laura and James did not deserve. Please always remember them when you hear "only the good dye young" and " Whiskey Lullabie" RIP Laura and James"
