The Staten Island Advance was the first to report that Michael, 42, was in custody on April 3. According to the NYPD, Jeanine, an elementary school teacher from the Cassidy Place section of Staten Island, was first reported missing on April 2. She was last seen by her boyfriend, Aaron, on March 30.

The New York Post reports that Michael Cammarata has admitted to assaulting his wife. Michael said that while having sex with Jeanine, he hit her, according to the New York Daily News.

He was charged with stalking, harassment, and assault, though law enforcement sources have said those charges are unrelated to Jeanine's disappearance.
