Battery plea for daughter of Nevada murder-suicide victims

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — The daughter of a Nevada ghosting-hunting couple killed last year in a murder-suicide pleaded guilty to a battery charge related to previous assaults involving the daughter, her parents and her mother’s friend.

Mark Constantino and his wife, Debra, appeared on the Travel Channel’s series, “Ghost Adventures,” before he kidnapped and fatally shot her during a seven-hour standoff with Sparks police in September.

Their daughter, Raquel Constantino, pleaded guilty to the attack on Summer Myers on Monday in exchange for dismissal of all other charges stemming from past disturbances. KOLO-TV in Reno reports a Washoe District Court judge agreed to suspend a six-month jail sentence as long as she completes anger management and alcohol counseling.

Raquel Constantino and her father originally were charged with assaulting Debra Constantino about a month before the killings at a Sparks apartment.
