Judge to Review Medical Records of Man Charged in Wife's Death

Almost a year after a Connecticut man was charged with killing his estranged wife and wounding her mother in a home invasion, a judge says will decide which of his medical records may be used in his defense.

The Connecticut Post reports Scott Gellatly and his lawyer David Egan appeared Tuesday before Superior Court Judge Frank Ianotti. Egan said the defense has had difficulty obtaining Gettally's records directly. Ianotti told him to seek the records for private review by the court.

Forty-seven-year old Gettatly has been under suicide watch and mental health care as he awaits trial on charges including murder and criminal attempt to commit murder.

Prosecutors say Gellatly broke into the Oxford home of Lori Gellatly, killing her and seriously injuring her mother. He was found filling his car with exhaust fumes.
