Man Charged In "Mob Wives" Bar Death Due In Court

(Staten Island, NY) -- The man accused of manslaughter in the death of a customer outside the New York City bar owned by "Mob Wives" reality star Big Ang is due in court today. Stephan Fassano turned himself in to Staten Island police yesterday. Friends of Abdoul Cisse want Fassano to be locked up for a long time.
Cisse is being buried today in his native Senegal while the man charged with punching him outside the Drunken Monkey faces a judge. Police say Cisse was trying to break up a fight early Monday when he fell, hit his head and died. Big Ang wasn't at the bar at the time but tweeted that Cisse was "not just a customer, but a gentle giant that I loved."
