  • Jury Selection Starts In Heath Murder Case

    DANBURY — Jury selection started last week in Danbury Superior Court in the trial of John S. Heath, 69, of Bridgewater, whom the state has charged with murder, alleging that he killed his wife Elizabeth, 32, in 1984 and then hid her body beneath the floor of a barn on a property at 89 Poverty Hollow Road in Newtown, where the couple had lived.

    Ms Heath’s remains were discovered in April 2010 when the property’s current owners were renovating that barn and found her skeleton.
