He says that Claudio's slander killed his daughter. Certainly the whole rumour was "much ado about nothing" but Shakespeare adds a twist, sometimes "nothing" can have grave consequences.

Leanato says that Hero's death is the result of slanderous tongues.

"Done to death by slanderous tongues."

Her death relates to the theme of "lies and deceit."
