Sentence in three murders

Sentence in three murders, Christian Tarantino, of Dix Hills, apparently led a double life for years, as both the owner of several health clubs and the leader of a gang who specialized in robbery.

Now, nearly two decades after he apparently embarked on a local murder spree, he will be sentenced tomorrow in connection with three murders. He faces three possible life sentences when sentenced in federal court in Central Islip.

In 2011, he was convicted of murdering Julis Baumgardt during a robbery, and the murder of one of the robbery participants.

Tarantino has also been convicted of the 2003 murder of his former friend,Vincent Gargiulo, of Sunnyside, Queens. Gargiulo was the brother in law of Twisted Sister frontman (and Baldwin, New York, native) Dee Snider. Tarantino and Gargiulo had a falling out over a business dispute. In 2011, a jury had first deadlocked on whether or not Tarantino had killed Gargiulo.

However, in 2012, a different jury found Tarantino guilty of the murder of his former friend.
