NEW BRITAIN — A Connecticut judge has ruled that a murder case against a slain doctor’s wife can proceed, despite officials viewing some of her documents that were protected by attorney-client privilege.

The Hartford Courant reports a state judge in New Britain on Friday rejected a request by Linda Kosuda-Bigazzi’s lawyers to dismiss the case.

The 71-year-old Kosuda-Bigazzi is accused of bludgeoning 84-year-old Dr. Pierluigi Bigazzi with a hammer at their Burlington home two years ago. Bigazzi was a UConn Medical School professor.

Her lawyers argued she cannot get a fair trial because investigators viewed documents seized from her home that were part of her defense strategy. Kosuda-Bigazzi has claimed self-defense.

The case, however, is expected to be moved to Hartford because the judge ruled it should be handled by authorities who have not seen the documents.
