Retired Detective Accused Of Staging Murder Scene Of Wife In Westfield

Former Westfield police detective Brian Fanion plead not guilty this morning to first-degree murder in Hampden Superior Court.

He's charged in connection with the death of his wife, Amy Fanion, in May of 2018.

He's being held without bail with a pretrial hearing scheduled in January.

Fanion was arrested by state troopers last night.

Police had originally investigated the death as a suicide.

Prosecutors say Mr Fanion shot his wife then staged the crime scene as if it were a suicide.
