Three Romanian citizens were retained on Thursday, suspected of murdering renowned businessman Franco Ambrosio and his wife, Giovanna. The Romanians were caught on Thursday morning in Licola, nearby Naples after police officers discovered a mobile phone stolen from the victim's house, Corriere del Mezzogiorno informs.

The Italian billionaire Franco Ambrosio, also known as "the king of cereals" and his wife were found dead on Wednesday in their own house. They were beaten severely by several felons who broke into their house.

Italian authorities discovered the three as they tracked a mobile phone taken from the house which the felons used to make several calls. Fingerprints found in the house match those of the Romanians.
