After a seven-year campaign, Milton Dykstra believed he had won a measure of justice for the violent death of his daughter Toni in an ugly custody dispute. Last week, Carlo Ventre, the father of Toni Dykstra's daughter Santina, was deported to his native Italy to face murder charges for the mother's killing. Toni Dykstra, 29, had gone to Italy in 1998 to bring back Santina, who Ventre, ignoring a court order, had taken out of the U.S. She died in Ventre's Rome apartment.
