    The wife of slain former boxing champion Arturo Gatti has been charged with his murder, the New York Daily News reported this afternoon on its Web site.

    Brazilian authorities arrested Amanda Rodrigues, 23, today, the News reported on its Web site. Authorities had said Gatti, who called Jersey City home, was strangled with a purse strap in a hotel room Saturday at a Sao Paolo, Brazil resort.

    The former junior welterweight champion was killed in his sleep, according to the News report.

    Earlier today authorities said that Rodrigues was considered a suspect because of contradictions in her story about Saturday's events.

    He was one of the modern greats. He will be missed.
