ROME, NY – Rome police are providing new details on the investigation into the death of a mother of three last weekend.

NewsChannel 2 reached out to Rome police on Friday and asked if there was a history of altercations between victim Kerrilee D’Avolio and her estranged husband, Jason D’Avolio. Police say they had never been called to the couple’s home on Belmont Street for any sort of domestic violence.

Kerrilee D’Avolio was found dead in the Oneida County landfill in Ave on Tuesday. She had been missing since Saturday evening. A gun police believe was used in Kerrilee’s death was found by sheriff’s office divers in the Barge Canal in Rome Tuesday morning.

Jason D’Avolio is charged with concealment of a human corpse. He claims his wife killed herself, then he disposed of her body in a Rome dumpster.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Rome Police Department at 315-339-7715. Police say additional charges are expected after the release of an autopsy report as soon as Monday.
