HARTFORD, Conn. – Today State Representative Kevin Skulczyck (R-Griswold), State Senator Heather Somers (R-Groton) and local officials called for an immediate review of Governor Malloy’s second chance program – specifically calling into question its effectiveness in reviewing individuals who might pose a danger to the public.

Legislators cited the horrific scene back in December of 2017 where Griswold residents Kenneth and Janet Lindquist were found inside their burnt home, and later in May when 21 year old Matthew Lindquist was found dead in the woods near the scene. All three deaths were ruled homicides by the medical examiner. Sergio Correa was officially charged on Monday, June 4th in New London with three counts of felony murder, one count of murder with special circumstances, first-degree robbery, first-degree arson, second-degree arson and one count of home invasion for the triple slaying of the Griswold family. Correa has earned over a year of risk reduction earned credits and in addition during his three years of probation, only five months were actually supervised.

CT State Legislators Senator Heather Somers, Representative Kevin Skulczyk and Senator Len Suzio hold a press conference at the Griswold Town Hall urging Governor Dan Malloy to call for a special session to halt the risk reduction credit program for Connecticut inmates. Griswold CT. June 5, 2018.
