Dina Manzo The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Man Charged in Dina Manzo Home Invasion Denied Bail!

The nightmare is (almost) over for former RHONJ star Dina Manzo and her husband David Cantin.

Page Six reports that the man accused of the 2017 home invasion was recently denied bail after appearing in court. On Tuesday, the Judge highlighted James Mainello’s criminal history including convictions for armed robbery and burglaries.

The brutal attack against Dina and David started when two men were waiting when Dina and then-fiancé David entered their home and were viciously attacked. The horrific reports state that David was beaten with a baseball bat while Dina was repeatedly kicked. The couple was then bound with zip ties before the men made off with valuables and cash.

Arrests were made when prosecutors say DNA on a zip tie matched Mainello’s DNA. Mainello’s lawyer is saying his client is denying the charges.

These reports are beyond horrific and I am glad justice is being served. I’m sure the post traumatic effects are still being felt by Dina and David as going through something like this is scarring. AllAboutTRH will be following this hearing so stay tuned for details.
