Talks are continuing behind closed doors between defense attorneys for New Canaan resident Kate Regan, who was charged in Nov. 2010 in a hit-and-run case after the death of a town resident.
"We continue to discuss possible resolution or litigation," said Christian Young, an attorney representing Kate Regan, who allegedly drove away after hitting 82-year-old Krishna S. Jayaraman of New Canaan with her vehicle.
Negotiating for a plea agreement has been ongoing for close to two years between Young's firm, Gulasch & Riccio of Bridgeport, and Assistant State's Attorney Suzanne Vieux, a lawyer for Jayaraman's family and Judge Maureen Dennis in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
On Thursday, Regan showed up to court and waited in the hallway before consulting with Young and leaving. Young also left after speaking with the prosecutor's office, but without appearing in court in connection with the case.
Regan was given a new court date of Feb. 5. She is charged with negligent homicide and leaving the scene of an accident.
Jayaraman was standing at a mailbox on Oenoke Ridge Road near the Pound Ridge border when a car struck him, according to police. In November, Regan turned herself in to police after they applied for a warrant for her arrest.
Jayaraman's family later filed a civil suit against Regan, seeking damages.
