Glastonbury Woman Pleads Not Guilty In Boyfriend’s Death

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) _ A 35-year-old Glastonbury woman has pleaded not guilty to murder in the shooting death of her ex-boyfriend at a Newington motel.

The Herald of New Britain reports  that Allana Carey entered the plea Monday in New Britain Superior Court. She’s accused of shooting 44-year-old Edward Landry to death at the Carrier Motor Lodge on the Berlin Turnpike on Jan. 2.

Carey’s lawyer, Patrick Tomasiewicz, says his client shot Landry in self-defense when Landry threatened her with a knife. He says Carey has a permit to legally carry the gun.

Tomasiewicz also alleged Landry was a member of the James Gang Motorcycle Club and he was threatening Carey’s family.

Carey is free on $1 million bail. She’s due back in court on May 10.
