Rintala Murder Trial Underway in Northampton
Jurors in the Cara Rintala murder case will hear day two of testimony today. In opening arguments Wednesday, prosecutors painted a picture of a turbulent marriage between Rintala and her wife, AnnaMarie Cochrane Rintala. They say the couple was drowning in debt, and multiple calls had been made to Granby Police during their marriage. But the defense argued that marital quarrels don't mean murder. It's the state's first murder case involving a same sex married couple.
