WILKES-BARRE -- A woman has withdrawn her guilty plea in a murder case in Luzerne County.

Last month, Jessica Alinsky pleaded guilty to third degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of her boyfriend.

Mathew Gallie was a corrections officer. He was found dead inside his Hazleton area home.

At the time, the coroner couldn't figure out if the death was a suicide or homicide..

Last summer, a coroner's inquest ruled Gallie's death a homicide and blamed Alinsky.

On Friday Newswatch 16 learned Alinsky withdrew her guilty plea and will now go to trial in Luzerne County.
