Bombshell Statement In Rintala Trial

(Springfield, MA) — A former medical examiner says Annamarie Cochrane-Rintala had been dead six-to-eight hours before her body was found by police in the basement of her Granby home. The statement was made during the second day of testimony in the trial of Cara Rintala, who’s charged with first-degree murder in the 2010 death of her wife. The time of death is key in determining who had the opportunity to kill the woman. The “Springfield Republican” reports if the medical examiner’s statement is true, it’s unlikely Cochrane-Rintala was killed by someone other than the defendant.
