Mystic – Plea Offer In Fatal Incident
A plea deal was just offered to a motorist suspected of killing two pedestrians in Mystic last year.
On March 9, 2019, 74-year-old Carol Belli of Groton was driving her vehicle on Greenmanville Avenue when she struck two pedestrians near the Rossie Pentway intersection. The crash critically injured the pedestrians. They were transported to the hospital but were pronounced dead soon after. Belli was later found to be intoxicated at the time of the crash and was immediately apprehended. She is currently facing charges of DUI and negligent homicide. State prosecutors recently reported that a plea deal will be offered to Belli, though the details of the offer have yet to be disclosed. This story will be updated as officials release more info.
Plea deals can be offered by prosecutors under specific circumstances. That said, making suspects liable for their actions will always be the priority, and these offers should not diminish that. It pays to follow these cases because we are informed of the procedures and legal ramifications of various road-related incidents, particularly those where negligence is involved.
