FIRST WE LEARN THAT GOVERNMENT LAWYERS OVERWHELMINGLY VOTE DEMOCRAT. NOW THIS: Govt. Attorney Accused In DC Home Invasion Commits Suicide.
Mannina, 58, was arrested last week in connection with a violent home invasion at the residence of one of his coworkers.
He was “found unresponsive on the bunk in his cell by facility security staff” around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, D.C. police said. Police said in an official release that the cause of death is under investigation.
Mannina had been in custody since Thursday following a June 5 incident at his coworker’s home on Chesapeake Street NW.
According to charging documents, the victim told detectives she was expecting Mannina to visit her that morning and she let him into her home.
She said he briefly walked back out to his car to get his camera to “take photographs of her cat,” but he returned with a red gym bag and used a stun gun on her while her back was turned.
He then allegedly struck her in the face several times, used pepper spray on her, ripped clothing off and handcuffed her hands behind her back. Police said he also attempted to sexually assault her.
The woman said he eventually let her go, and she led him out of the home and drove herself to a hospital. She had been beaten so badly that a plate had to be surgically implanted in her face, The Washington Post reported.
If he were a Tea Partier, the press would make him a symbol of the entire movement.
