Homicide

Conn. state employee fired for allegedly showing Newtown gunman's body

The employee at Connecticut's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner accused of letting her husband see the body of the Newtown school shooter has been fired.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver, in a dismissal letter to Jean Henry released Friday, wrote that bringing her husband into the morgue in December violated the agency's ethical mission and showed "extremely poor judgment."

Chris DeFrancesco, a University of Connecticut Health Center spokesman, says a grievance process is underway and no further information is available.

Henry, a processing technician, was accused of showing Adam Lanza's body to her husband on Dec. 16, two days after he killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

A message was left Friday for Henry at her home.
