When police went there to check on him, they found the 30-year-old dead from gunshot wounds. An autopsy is being conducted Friday morning.

Addimando has been charged with second-degree murder. She’s being held in the Dutchess County Jail without bail.

It couldn’t be determined from authorities if Addimando has a lawyer.
