$3M bond for Bartlett man charged in wife’s murder

BARTLETT, Ill. -- A judge set bond at $3 million for a man charged with murdering his wife in Bartlett.

58 year-old Carlo Madonia had his first appearance before a judge on Friday.

Authorities say he confessed to the murder. He allegedly strangled her because she was nagging him about returning to work.

58 year-old Nancy Madonia was found in the master bedroom.

Police say he had blood on a hand, and on his shirt. Nancy had bitten his finger.

The couple's children told police, Carlo hasn't been the same since a heart attack around Easter.

Madonia told police he tried to hang himself afterward but wasn't able to go through with it.
