The spiritual director at the Cheshire County House of Corrections, Deacon Arnold Gustafson, asks for leniency for Tracey Burroughs at her plea hearing Friday in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene.MEGHAN PIERCE
Burroughs maintained in court Friday that she has no memory of the accident that killed her friend, boss and former boyfriend, cyclist Keon E. Ioannou, 48, of Keene about 1:50 a.m. Nov. 2.Ioannou was the chef and owner of Tony Clamato's Ristorante on Court Street, where Burroughs was a waitress.
Family members wept in court when Assistant Cheshire County Attorney John Webb described Ioannou's injuries. An autopsy showed Ioannou died of multiple blunt impact injuries, including basal skull fractures with transacted brain stem, Webb said.
Before the sentencing, Burroughs told Kissinger she knows now she was drinking too much and too often and drove drunk that night. She said she was ready to accept responsibility for her friend's death.
"She has no memory. She is absolutely certain that her actions are the cause of the death of Keon. The suggestion that she has not accepted responsibility is not accurate. Upon reviewing all of the evidence she is absolutely certain she is responsible and accepts and admits that," Hill said.
The family members were told the day before the hearing to talk about how Ioannou's death affected them without talking about Burroughs, Leo Ioannou said. But her irresponsible actions are tied to his death and their suffering, he said.
Leo Ioannou said since his brother's death, he has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
