The woman accused of lying to police about Joanne Ringer's disappearance last year is set to go on trial in November after a judge denied her request for a modified plea agreement that would have split up her charges.

The Berkshire Eagle reports during a change of plea hearing yesterday, an attorney filed a motion to allow Laura Reilly to plead guilty to one of the three counts against her and schedule a bench trial on the remaining counts.

The motion was denied by Berkshire Superior Court Judge John Agostini and a final pretrial conference in the case has now been set for Oct. 22nd.

The 43-year-old Reilly, of Easthampton is accused of lying to police about particular pieces of information in their investigation into Ringer's demise.
