Parents: Don’t release video of UConn student’s death
HARTFORD — The parents of a University of Connecticut student who died after being run over by a campus fire department vehicle are asking a judge to prohibit public release of a school surveillance video of the accident.
A Hartford Superior Court judge has scheduled a hearing for next Monday.
Authorities say the West Hartford couple’s daughter, Jeffny Pally, fell asleep in front of the fire department Oct. 16 after drinking alcohol at an off-campus party. A department SUV accidentally ran over her while responding to what turned out to be a false alarm.
Six UConn students were charged with alcohol-related offenses after her death.
