Vincent "Vinny" Marino is the stalker and murderer of his wife, Christine Marino, appearing in Nothing for Something in CSI:New York.


Little is known about Marino, except he married a woman named Christine, whom Marino was regularly abusive toward, psychotically obsessed with and possessive over. She ran and went into hiding with a friend named Charles Martin, coincidentally a budding serial killer of two women by the time of Nothing for Something. Once she was done, she fled to a motel before she could officially run. PI Mark Fields was hired to find her, processing Martin's apartment and assuming from blood spatter from the two women Martin killed, Martin murdered Christine as well. After Martin was caught and denied laying a hand Christine, the CSIs eventually found the motel room—but Vinny got to there first, barging through the door and slashing Christine to death when she was trying to keep Vinny out. They knew she was shoved in a leopard-patterned suitcase she brought with her and wheeled out, as well as Vinny being the killer, but they didn't have her remains. They lied to Vinny in interrogation and degraded the crimes, which led to Vinny starting to cry and reveal where she was: the first place they met, a lake in Prospect Park. She was pulled out still in the suitcase by divers, and Vinny was soon after arrested and incarcerated.
