Accused stalker found incompetent to stand trial in Burlington

November 17, 1998, Burlington (States News Services) — A woman accused of stealing another woman's identity, then wreaking havoc on her life, has been found incompetent to stand trial. Laura Burawa will instead go to the state hospital in Waterbury.

Prosecutors say she obtained a duplicate birth certificate and driver's license for Laurie Church of Burlington, then emptied her bank accounts — filed for divorce — and even obtained a restraining order against Laurie Church's husband.


 

Jury convicts 73-year-old grandmother in husband's bludgeoning death

July 30, 2006 — A Vermont jury found a 73-year-old woman guilty of second-degree murder Friday for the violent bludgeoning death of her husband in 2004.

The verdict, reached after 13 hours of deliberations over two days, signaled that jurors believed Hope Schreiner killed her 78-year-old husband, Robert, but that they didn't find sufficient evidence of premeditation to convict her of first-degree murder.

Schreiner, who denies she was involved in her husband's slaying, maintained her characteristic flat expression during the verdict. Her face fell, however, as District Judge Katherine Hayes revoked her $100,000 bail pending sentencing.
