From the federal arrest of a former Middletown resident accused of killing his mother at sea to the fatal stabbing of a Fairfield Prep student at a Shelton gathering, a number of criminal cases with ties to Connecticut will be moving through state and federal courts during the second half of 2022.
Although some serious cases were stalled when most court operations were altered or shut down amid the pandemic, Judicial Branch officials said trials and cases have been moving forward more rapidly. Federal cases are also moving, with many court appearances online. Some of these cases may see a resolution by the end of the year. Others may take more time.
