Attorney: Evidence Shows Buck Killed Wife

August 29, 2006, The Day, Joe Wojtas

An attorney for the estate of Leslie Buck has revealed in court documents that police and New London State's Attorney's Office have shown her evidence that supports the estate's contention that the 57-year-old schoolteacher was killed by her husband, Charles in 2002. Attorney Shelley L. Graves has written that evidence shows Leslie Buck was struck on the forehead by an object the day she died and that the resulting head injuries were not enough to kill her.
