    Thank you so much for posting this, I’ve been wondering all day what happened in court...which as you prepared me for, was a let down.
    I️ did notice the following in the article:

    -Town of Poughkeepsie police say Addimando caused Grover's death "by shooting his head with a handgun,”

    -Police said Addimando flagged down a patrol officer around 2 a.m. on Sept. 28 and told them she had been "involved in an incident with her boyfriend."

    -Officers checked on Grover "and found him deceased" in the apartment.

    Interesting that it specifically says she told the officer she was “involved in an INCIDENT” and they find him dead from a gunshot wound to the head. Was she trying to make it seem like she didn’t know he was dead? attempting to stage a suicide? Or she could have been so shocked from it that she couldn’t think or say much?
    I️ wonder why she didn’t just call 911? Or knock on someone’s door? So were the kids home sleeping and she ran out without them?

    All great questions, and all ones we probably won't ever know the answers to. I'm choosing to assume she was in a situation of life or death herself and shooting him was the only logical option she could think of.

    However, the fact that the paper chose to mention he was shot in the head sort of makes me think she may have done it while he was asleep or not in a moment of violence. Just too few details to really surmise at this point.

    If it was done I n self-defense, I don’t understand the delay in reporting it.

    Yes and yes- I agree with both of you.
    The specific statement about where he was shot is very interesting and can be either way- self defense or cold blooded murder while he slept.
    I wonder how she’s holding up in jail? She appears to be very hands on with her kids. This must be earth shattering. Not saying that it isn’t just as devastating for Chris and his family/friends.

    It's the Poughkeepsie Journal - not class A journalism we're talking about. I assume they aren't reporting anything because those details haven't been revealed yet. She hasn't had a lawyer stick at this point so who would she have told anything to that would be press worthy?

    I can't imagine what the kids are thinking and/or have been told. It's been almost 2 months now and given how young they are I wonder if they have forgotten and moved on?

    Good point, the Poughkeepsie Journal isn’t the Pulitzer’s prize winner for investigative reporting...

    Her kids seem like they were not in daycare or school yet so I assume they spent a lot of time at home. I know we can’t sleuth family and I’m not, but I did see a prior post that was removed because it linked a social media account of a family member. But it appears the children are being cared for by family which is so much better than being in CPS custody.
    I too wonder if they’re processing it or aren’t able to because of their age.

    This article is a month old:

    http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/s...ned/863051001/

    A special prosecutor will be assigned to handle a case involving a Town of Poughkeepsie woman accused of killing her live-in boyfriend, according to the Dutchess County Public Defender's Office.
    Attorneys in the case appeared in the Town of Poughkeepsie Court before Judge Paul Sullivan on Tuesday afternoon. There was no discussion; it was adjourned until Jan. 2. Addimando was not in the court room.
    "I was advised that the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office has a conflict and will not be handling the prosecution of the case," Gerry said. It's unclear what the conflict is. The district attorney's office could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The case has not yet gone to a grand jury.

    Dutchess prosecutor 'witness' in Addimando murder case

    http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/s...ase/867691001/

    A special prosecutor will be assigned to handle a town of Poughkeepsie homicide because a Dutchess County assistant district attorney is a witness in the case.
    Grady declined further comment on the situation and would not say if the assistant district attorney would be a witness for the prosecution or defense.

    Addimando's lawyer, Kara Gerry of the Dutchess County Public Defender's Office, said Tuesday she had not yet received notice of a date the case will be presented to a grand jury.

    NY - Christopher Grover, 30, shot to death, Poughkeepsie, 28 Sept 2017 *Arrest*

    Thanks for the articles cocomod!
    This case has me by the heart strings. I just can’t stop wondering how those kids are holding up. To them, at least what I saw on Mom’s social media, they had such a beautiful life.
    I imagine she’s got to be having a difficult time coping herself, in jail and all.
    Looks like we will have to wait until January for future updates.

    On December 10th, there was a gymnastic's competition. The new coach and gym dedicated the boys performance to Christopher Grover. Sweet gesture.

    This case baffles me since there was so very little information.

    That’s awesome! Friends of ours have kids that Chris coached...seems everyone loved him, and he was excellent with kids.
    I’m also surprised there is so little information on this case. But then again it’s a small community here and perhaps they’re keeping things quiet to avoid tainting the jury pool?

    I can't imagine! I do wonder if they are trying to keep the jury pool from becoming tainted. However, it seems like such a heart-breaking case, I can't believe it hasn't received more attention.

    As I said, I am completely baffled. You are right, social media seems idyllic, she seems sweet, he seems loved and accomplished. What happened here?!!

    NY - Christopher Grover, 30, shot to death, Poughkeepsie, 28 Sept 2017 *Arrest*

    Hmmm... did some sleuthing and came across this article that I missed. I knew there was a conflict with the previous DA but it didn’t disclose why...according to this, a DA will testify as a witness (insert jaw dropping emoji). Sooo witness as in someone who saw something perhaps that evening or prior instances?
    Would a DA or attorney that works in that office take outside clients that were filing a custody battle?? I’m wondering if there was a breakup on the horizon and this DA got involved as a lawyer one of them retained?
    Otherwise I’m a bit miffed at how they could serve as a witness...unless of course they knew them personally...
    Very interesting to say the least. And I thought I was intrigued before!

    “Putnam County District Attorney Robert Tendy has been appointed as the special prosecutor in a Poughkeepsie homicide case because a Dutchess County assistant district attorney will serve as a witness in the case, according to Dutchess County District Attorney William Grady.

    The assistant district attorney will testify as a witness in the case against Nicole Addimando, 28, who is accused of killing her 30-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Grover, in late September in the Town of Poughkeepsie.”
