    Ronald DeFeo Jr., convicted for killing his parents and four siblings in Amityville, New York in 1974, is remarried


    Nissa Burkhalter, and new wife of Ronald DeFeo Jr. kept her last name due to the stigma attached to the DeFeo name. She kept her marriage anonymous from family and friends for as long as she could, but knew It would eventually unfold. They married in the Green Haven Correctional Facility in Stormville, New York on June 27, 2012. Mrs. Burkhalter has come to the decision to open up about her marriage after seeing her name appear on numerous websites as Ronlads new wife,  and due to her tell-all book about the DeFeo family dynamics, that include Great Uncle, Pete DeFeo's involvement in the Genovese Mafia as Capo, and how all male members in the family helped out the Mafia by providing weapons, destroying weapons, and body disposal. The Biography titled "Thorns and Shards, the biography of Ronald DeFeo," is due at the end of 2014. She and Ronald have been contacted by several producers of International Television shows to be guests, but they have both declined to make any appearances until the book is published. The biography, she states will not discuss any hauntings, but will provide evidence that will expose all of the Amityville players that made Amityville a multimillion dollar industry, and people that had coerced Ronald along the way for the purpose of money. When the biography is published, Mrs. Burkhalter will donate a large portion of the proceeds to charities for children in Amityville.
