The Bristol County District Attorney's Office says former t-v personality Sheila Martines Pina was found dead this morning in her Dartmouth home.  She was 58.  The D-A's office is calling the case an "unattended death." 

During the 1980's, Martines-Pina co-hosted "PM Magazine" on Channel 10 in Providence with Rick Smith and Matt Lauer.  She began her career at WNBH Radio.  She was also a former Director of the Bristol County Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

She later struggled with alcohol problems, but continued to work as a mentor to women and small businesses.  She also served on the Board of Directors for the Schwartz Center, and had started a group to assist female inmates at the Bristol County House of Correction. 

Martines-Pina was married to former Bristol County District Attorney Ronald Pina.  An autopsy is scheduled.
