Valarie Carey said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday that perhaps her sister, Miriam Carey, was afraid and fleeing with a 13-month-old child in her car when she was killed on Thursday. Another sister, retired New York City police officer Amy Carey-Jones, suggests police overreacted or were negligent. The sisters also disputed officials’ account that Miriam Carter was under the delusion that President Barack Obama was communicating with her. Amy Carey-Jones said it’s “not the Miriam we knew.”

JUDGE E. CURTISSA R. COFIELD by Dave Collins HARTFORD, Conn.
