Jury deliberations in Granby slaying continue

March 11, 2013

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A Hampshire Superior Court jury has ended its second day of deliberations in the case of a woman charged with killing her wife in their Granby home.

The jurors in the murder trial of Cara Rintala are expected to continue weighing the case Tuesday.

Rintala is charged with strangling and beating Annamarie Cochrane Rintala, who was found dead in the basement of their home in 2010.

The women, both paramedics, had been married for two years and were raising a child.

The prosecutor in closings said the defendant “flipped” and killed her wife after months of stress over finances.

The defense said that evidence in the case was weak and prosecutors overlooked other possible suspects.
