Connecticut man charged with assisting relative’s suicide

WESTBROOK, Conn. (AP) — State police say a Westbrook man has been charged with second-degree manslaughter after allegedly helping a terminally ill family member to die by suicide.

Authorities say 65-year-old Kevin Conners turned himself in at a state police barracks Thursday and posted $50,000 bail. He is accused of assisting the suicide in September.

Police say the arrest was made following a lengthy investigation.

Conners is scheduled to make a court appearance Friday. A phone message left at a number listed for his home address was not immediately returned.
