NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) _ An eastern Connecticut woman is facing sentencing for killing her mother in 1993, but she’s expected to get time served and be released from custody.

Forty-one-year-old Irene Reynolds of Baltic is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in New London Superior Court. She pleaded no contest to manslaughter in

December and is expected to get up to 30 months in prison.

But Reynolds already has served 33 months in pretrial detention and is expected to be freed Wednesday.

She was charged with murder in 2010, 17 years after 60-year-old Bertha Reynolds was found dead in her Norwich home. Police say Bertha Reynolds was beaten, strangled and thrown down a staircase.
The case went unsolved for years until a police cold case squad took it up and charged Irene Reynolds.
