Granby Slaying Trial Scheduled for February

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — The trial of a Granby woman charged with beating and strangling her wife is scheduled to start in February.

A judge on Monday scheduled jury selection in the trial of Cara Lee Rintala for Feb. 11. The trial was scheduled after the prosecutor and defense attorney told a judge that DNA testing in the case had been completed.

Rintala is facing a first-degree murder charge in connection with the March 2010 death of Annamarie Cochrane Rintala, who was found dead in the basement of the couple’s home. The victim had been a paramedic for American Medical Response.

Prosecutors have said the couple had a turbulent relationship and faced financial problems.

The 46-year-old Rintala has pleaded not guilty.
