Woman lied about home invasion, police say


A Suffield woman is facing her first court appearance since being charged with making up a story about a home invasion and sexual assault. Kelly Wilson, 29, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Enfield Superior Court on charges of falsely reporting an incident, giving a false statement to police, and misusing Suffield’s 911 system. Wilson called police April 13 and said a masked man with a gun broke into her home and sexually assaulted her. She was brought to a hospital and police launched a manhunt. But police said they soon found discrepancies in Wilson’s story and she later admitted making it up. Wilson posted $50,000 bail. Her lawyer, Timothy Brignole, said he believes his client is innocent and she will plead not guilty.
