Kimberly Fry, , has replaced the lawyers who represented her in last year's trial, says the Providence Journal.
According to the Journal, Fry wrote a letter to the court explaining that Joseph Salvadore would replace public defenders Sarah Wright and John Lavoy. In her letter, Fry stated she was unaware of her lawyers' intent to pursue the "accidental theory" during trial, in which they argued that while trying to perform a restraint technique on the girl. According to testimony, 8-year-old Camden was in the throes of a temper tantrum after refusing to take a bath.
Fry went on to say that her lawyers should have pursued a defense of diminished capacity which could have garnered a lesser charge of manslaughter. According to , Fry's medication usage, sleep deprivation, anxiety and depression supported that Fry acted with diminished capacity and was "paralyzed" by her "evil impulses."
In her letter, Fry wrote, "that trial was NEVER supposed to be about something wrong with my beautiful little girl, but rather about something going very wrong with me." Fry also stated that her conviction "was not the fault of this court but rather the result of deeply flawed, inadequate and ineffectual legal representation."
Fry was convicted of second-degree murder on Oct. 6, 2011 following a three-week-long trial and faces the possibility of life in prison. Fry strangled her daughter Camden in their home on Ricci Lane in North Kingstown in August 2009.
Fry's sentencing has been scheduled for Feb. 17 in Providence County Superior Court.
