NEW BRITAIN, Conn.—The lawyer for a woman charged with murder says she acted in self-defense when she fatally shot her boyfriend at a Berlin Turnpike motel.

Alanna Carey of Glastonbury was arraigned in New Britain Superior Court on Wednesday. The Hartford Courant reports (http://cour.at/xxqHgt) that her lawyer, Patrick Tomasiewicz (to-MOSS'-eh-wits), says Edward Landry pulled a knife on her during a dispute Monday night and she acted to save her life.

Bail was set at $1 million.

Police say Carey called 911 from the motel in Newington and said she and her boyfriend were talking when he became angry and came out with a knife. Police say she told the dispatcher she became scared and shot him.

Police say the 44-year-old Landry was shot three times.
