A man charged in the fatal shooting of a Cicero restaurant owner who was trying to protect his wife this week was ordered held without bail today.

Matthew A. Brown-Turner, 25, has been charged with murder and attempted armed robbery in the fatal shooting of Giovanni Donancricchia, 64, early Thursday morning. Brown-Turner, who court records show lives in Buffalo, N.Y., was ordered held today in a Cook County Bond Court hearing.

Donancricchia saw Brown-Turner enter the back door of his restaurant, Albano's Pizza, around 12:30 a.m. and followed him to the counter, where he saw Brown-Turner pointing a gun at his wife, Angela, 62, police said.

"Giovanni observed the offender with the gun and entered through the swinging door and physically confronted the offender, giving his wife time to escape from the area," town officials said in a statement. "Giovanni followed her out but then returned to confront the offender again and was shot once in the chest."
