Michele was murdered in self defense by Giovanfrancesco (Francesco) Rotondi. Michele, accompanied by Giovanni di Nuzzolo, Marco la Torella, Domenico Cassano, Ferdinando Vozella and Carmine Carideo attacked the home of Francesco Rotondi.

Francesco escaped, but not before killing Michele and Carmine Carideo (Carmine was the nephew of Michele) and getting a piece of Giovanni di Nuzzolo.

Incidentally, Michele was married to Orsola Penna (daughter of Errico and Angela Rosa Cefalo) at the time of his death. Orsola went on to wed Pasquale Cheche in 1862 and Tommaso Carideo (nephew of first husband Michele and almost 30 years her junior) in 1876. None of her marriages produced children. Pedigree charts of all involved are below.
