Ronchi’s lawyers called an administrator at Cape Ann Waldorf School who brought documents that they hoped would counter the suggestion that Ronchi paid his children’s tuition two days before the killing because he knew he might not be available to do so.
But those records showed that in each prior year, Ronchi had paid the tuition in June or July, not May.
Another witness, Julie Spreadbury, who rented space to Ronchi for his massage therapy practice in Lynn, testified that Ronchi did tell her about Galperina’s pregnancy. “He was not unhappy,” Spreadbury, under questioning by Wood, testified.
Then, Curran asked her about the context of their conversation. It turns out Spreadbury had expressed her concerns about the unplanned pregnancy of her son’s girlfriend.
Unplanned pregnancy happens to older people, too, she said Ronchi told her, before confiding in her about Galperina’s baby on the way.
