CT - Woman arrested in mother's cold case murder from 1993
Woman arraigned in mother's 1993 murder

Thirty-eight-year-old Irene Reynolds was arraigned today in Norwich Superior Court on charges that she murdered her mother in 1993.
Outside the courthouse, Reynolds’ husband, Joel Outlaw, proclaimed her innocence.
“She is sitting behind bars for no reason,” said Outlaw.
The nephew of victim, Bertha Reynolds, screamed at Outlaw, “What about my aunt?”
Bertha Reynolds was found at the bottom of a staircase at her Laurel Avenue in July 1993. She died of blunt trauma to the head and strangulation.

I really hope they release more about this case, including why they suspect the daughter.

From February 2013:
Reynolds, 41, a married mother of three children, has been in prison since May 2010 and is expected to be released within days now that her case has been resolved.
Reynolds has never publicly admitted to killing Bertha Reynolds on July 9, 1993, a fact that bothers her father, Jim Reynolds, who with his wife adopted Irene Reynolds as an infant. The father said he was a suspect in his wife's death until 2006 and had a hard time collecting on a life insurance policy he had on his wife.
"Just for simple robberies, people do more time," Jim Reynolds said of his daughter's 30-month prison sentence.
