Reilly Charged With Lying To Police In Ringer Case
It appears the case of Laura Reilly, accused of lying to police investigating the disappearance and homicide of Joanne "Jo" Ringer, will not be heard by a jury but, instead, will end with a change of plea before a judge, sometime in September.
The Berkshire Eagle reports Reilly, 43, of Easthampton was indicted by a Berkshire grand jury and arraigned on three counts of misleading a police officer in connection with the Ringer investigation.
Reilly came to the attention of authorities when it was learned she had a relationship with Ringer's husband, Charles "Chad" Reidy, who remains the state's sole suspect in Ringer's death.
But Reidy took his life a little more than one month after Ringer's March 2, 2017, disappearance.
Her remains were discovered in Hatfield a few days short of one year after she failed to show up for her first shift driving for an Easthampton-based taxi company.
Reilly's attorney, Jesse Adams, has maintained all along that his client had nothing to do with Ringer's disappearance.
