Actress Cheri Oteri's father stabbed to death in Nashville

Condolences to Upper Darby native actress Cheri Oteri, whose father Gaetano Thomas Oteri was stabbed to death Saturday night in Nashville, the Associated Press has reported. His roommate, Richard William Fagan, a 61-year-old country music songwriter has been arrested and charged with the homicide of 69-year-old Oteri, whose daughter is most known for her five years on "Saturday Night Live." Nashville police arrested Fagan on suspicion of DUI, earlier last weekend, but he was released and re-arrested and charged with homicide after Oteri's body was discovered in the house the two men shared, according to the Associated Press report. Fagan, who has co-written several songs for John Michael Montgomery, was raised in Philadelphia and moved to Nashville in 1986, according to his website. Cheri Oteri, a graduate of Archbishop Prendergast High School in Drexel Hill, will be seen in the upcoming "Major Movie Star," alongside Jessica Simpson. She has not yet released a statement on her father's death.
