September 29, 2013

A not guilty verdict for a nursing home employee accused of killing a patient in Windham County.
Jodi LaClaire of Bennington, N.H.,worked at the Thompson House in Brattleboro.

She was accused of killing 83-year-old Nita Lowery.

Prosecutors say, LaClaire injected Lowery with insulin, which caused Lowery’s death.

Investigators also found evidence that LaClaire tried to take out money from Lowery’s bank account.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports that the jury convicted LaClaire on those theft charges, but not the second-degree murder charge.
