Jealousy alleged in slaying


A Waltham man allegedly hired a career felon to kill his estranged wife's boyfriend, prosecutors say.

Prosecutors say that James Brescia, 46, became obsessed with "eliminating" Edward Schiller, 39, of Framingham, and hired Scott Foxworth, 52, of Dracut, to do it.

Schiller was fatally shot on Jan. 13 in a parking garage next to his office in Newton.

Brescia and Foxworth pleaded not guilty to murder and conspiracy charges yesterday.

Brescia's lawyer, J.W. Carney Jr., tells the Globe today that his client had nothing to do with the killing, while Foxworth's lawyer had no comment.
