Baretta star Robert Blake dies aged 89 from heart disease
Robert Blake has died at the age of 89 after a battle with heart disease, his family says.
Blake worked in Hollywood for over 60 years, starring in classics like Treasure of the Sierra Madre with Humphrey Bogart and In Cold Blood with John Forsythe. He was also the star of a number of studio westerns under the stage name Bobby Blake.
He was also known on television as undercover New York detective Tony Baretta in Baretta, which aired on ABC for four seasons in the mid-1970s.
But while his career was widely celebrated, Blake had also been charged with the 2002 murder of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, along with solicitation of murder, conspiracy and special circumstances of ambush.
However, a jury found him not guilty of ordering a former stuntman he worked with on Baretta to kill Bakley, and her murder was never solved.
