The husband of slain "Waitress" star Adrienne Shelly is suing the owner of building where the actress was strangled by an illegal immigrant.
Andrew Ostroy has sued the owner of the Abingdon Square building for letting contractors illegally hire illegal immigrants, including the one who killed his wife.
Shelly died in November 2006 at the hands of Ecuadoran construction worker Diego Pillco, who is serving 25 years in prison for manslaughter. He will be deported when he completes his sentence.
"Defendants knew and should have known that Pillco and other construction workers were undocumented immigrants and were not authorized to work in the United States [and] the state of New York," the suit says.
