Rintala Denied Bail by the SJC

Murder suspect Cara Rintala will remain behind bars while she awaits a new trial.  The Granby woman is accused of strangling her wife in 2010.  Rintala’s murder trial in March ended with a deadlocked jury.  She then appealed her bail denial to the state’s highest court. The SJC denied Rintala’s appeal on Thursday.  A local court conference to schedule the new trial date will be held July 11th.
