Mass. woman accused of killing wife seeks bail

Continue reading below

A Massachusetts woman awaiting retrial in the 2010 strangulation and beating death of her wife has asked a judge to free her on bail. A lawyer for Cara Lee Rintala, 46, asked a judge Thursday to release his client on $250,000 bail. In the motion, her lawyer said Rintala’s family, friends, and members of her church have all helped raise the money and support her release. The Daily Hampshire Gazette reported that prosecutors oppose granting bail because of the seriousness of the charges. Authorities said Rintala killed Annamarie Cochrane Rintala, a paramedic, in their Granby home in March 2010 after months of stress about finances. The murder trial in March ended in a mistrial.
