    A Connecticut medical examiner's office employee 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."               
    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.
                  
    Chris DeFrancesco, a University of Connecticut Health Center spokesman, says a grievance process is underway and no further information is available. The center handles personnel matters for the medical examiner's lab.
