BRISTOL, Connecticut. – Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the case of the University of Connecticut scientist charged with killing her professor husband are looking to seal its arrest warrant for at least 90 days.
Linda Kosuda-Bigazzi is charged with murder in the death of an 84-year-old Pierluigi Bigazzi, a professor in a laboratory science and pathology at UConn Health. Researchers say that his body would have been in their home for months before it was discovered Feb. 5.
The court documents indicate the police believe his death may have occurred as early as 13 June.
Defense attorneys say the warrant contains details which, if made public, could make it difficult for Kosuda-Bigazzi to a fair trial.
Prosecutors say that the case could be harmed if the warrant is made public before the state police have investigated.
