Country songwriter RICHARD FAGAN, who was accused of murdering longtime roommate and business partner GAETANO OTERI last weekend in NASHVILLE (NET NEWS 4/28), has been released from jail on a $20,000 bond and ordered to enter an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center in BURNS, TN.
OTERI, the father of former SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE actress CHERI OTERI, was found dead in the home he shared with FAGAN last SATURDAY night (4/26), after being stabbed in his right wrist with a COLT pocket knife during an argument. Both men were intoxicated at the time. After leaving the house, FAGAN was arrested on a DUI charge and later found out OTERI was fatally wounded after calling a friend from jail and asking him to check on him.
