The Port Jefferson woman accused in the fatal shoving of a Broadway vocal coach rejected a plea deal Wednesday.
The Manhattan district attorney says Lauren Pazienza, 26, turned down an offer that would have had her spend 15 years in prison - and be under 5 years post-release supervision.
Pazienza allegedly pushed Barbara Gustern in Manhattan.
The 87-year-old hit her head and died five days later.
Pazienza has pleaded not guilty to the attack.
