Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo’s ex-husband Thomas ‘Tommy’ Manzo has been indicted as an alleged accomplice in her grisly home invasion in 2017, when she was left beaten and tied up. 

A grand jury in Monmouth County indicted Thomas, 56, on Tuesday and he has already turned himself in, TMZ reports. 

Dina, 49, and her current entrepreneur husband David Cantin, 41, were both allegedly attacked with bare fists and baseball bats during the altercation, as they walked into their New Jersey home.

Thomas has received multiple assault charges, a burglary charge, a theft charge, a robbery charge, a weapons charge and multiple stalking charges against both Dina and David, according to the report. 

He will be moved to the Monmouth County jail in Freehold Township ahead of his first court appearance. 

Thomas was not previously charged in the 2017 attack, but has now been named as an accomplice to James Mainello, 53, of Bayonne, who was previously indicted in the case in 2019.

The suspects are said to have punched Dina in the head face, while her husband David was struck with a bat. 

Per the report, Dina and David were then allegedly tied up with zip ties, as the suspects robbed them of her engagement ring as well as cash. 

Tommy was married Dina in 2007 but the two separated in 2013 and were officially divorced in 2016. During their marriage, he was the stepfather to her daughter from her first marriage, Lexi Ioannou.

The couple’s attorney Andrew Brettler told TMZ in a statement: ‘This was an awful ordeal for Dina and David and hopefully it is the final step in bringing them closure of this matter.’

In July last year, Tommy also plead not guilty to hiring Lucchese mobster soldier to attack Dina’s husband David, in a separate incident that took place in 2015.
