Police told the Middletown Patch website they found Massey, 37, holding a folding knife with blood up to his elbows on both arms.

A Litchfield Superior Court judge didn't buy the defense of cinematographer Adam Kissel, a Salisbury resident. Kissel, a registered sex offender, violated his probation through an online correspondence with a 16-year-old girl and segued their discussion of film into movies about romances between older men and younger women. Attorneys said Kissel only kept up the conversation so as to not hurt her feelings and tried to arrange an in-person meeting to explain why they couldn't be together, reports the Torrington Register-Citizen. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
