Events of Criminal Case

Margherita became a suspect after the player and Maddie learnt from Constable Ramirez that the victim committed a lot of driving offenses outside of her residence. Margherita revealed that she was a happy client of Thomas's, and that he drove her to many of her appointments. She claimed that she felt safe with him around. After learning that Thomas had been killed, she was confused as to why someone would want to kill a man like him, and rushed to reschedule her next appointments.

Margherita was spoken to again about a photo of her and Thomas on a joyful excursion. She revealed that they were in love, but that they had to hide their romance due to the Irish-Italian conflict. Even so, she claimed that their love was strong, yet doomed.

In the end, Margherita was revealed to be Thomas's killer. After denying involvement, Margherita admitted to the crime. She called herself a fool for believing in their forbidden romance, as Thomas was too afraid to show public affection towards her. However, the final straw was Thomas dumping her after learning that she was part of the Italian gang, leading her to fight Thomas, hoist him up by his feet, and gutting him like a pig. In Court, she confessed that Butcher Betty had helped her hide the body. Judge Lawson sentenced her to 25 years in jail.
