Bonmartini, Linda (1873–?)

Italian murderer. Name variations: Linda Murri; Countess Bonmartini; Linda Bonmartini-Murri. Born Linda Murri in 1873; m. Count Bonmartini (murdered Sept 2, 1902).

An upperclass woman married to philandering Count Bonmartini, took up with Carlo Secchi (or Secci); expressed unhappiness about her marriage to her brother Tullio, who apparently harbored his own dislike for the count; after the count was found stabbed to death in his home on the Via Mazzini in Bologna (1902), was tried for the murder, along with Carlo, Tullio, and Tullio's lover Rosina Bonetti, in a case that caused a national furor; with others, was found guilty and received a long prison sentence.
