Did a Health Company CEO Order a Hit on His Estranged Wife?

CEO Wanted to Pay $80,000 to Have His Ex-Model Wife Killed, Prosecutors Say

Originally posted 04/09/2014 05:45PM

Monica Olsen is a gorgeous former model whom many men would want to marry. But prosecutors say her husband, Dino Guglielmelli, CEO of a health supplements company, wanted her dead.

So much so that, over a lunch of mint noodles and chicken on Oct. 1 of last year, Guglielmelli, 52, allegedly offered his friend, Richard Fuhrmann, $80,000 to do a hit on Olsen, who walked runways at high-profile fashion shows and appeared in the 2002 movie The Hot Chick.

Olsen and Guglielmelli wed 11 years before their marriage fell apart. Deputy District Attorney Emily Cole told PEOPLE Tuesday that the former couple were going through a bitter divorce when Guglielmelli apparently decided he'd rather kill his wife than see her prevail in their battles over money and custody of their two young daughters.

Fuhrmann told authorities: "Dino has to win. It was about winning," according to Cole.
