NEW YORK (AP) - A woman charged with killing her fiance by sabotaging his kayak on New York’s Hudson River says she loved him and didn’t kill him.

Angelika Graswald says in an ABC News interview for Friday’s “20/20” (https://abcn.ws/1RB2XjT ) she loved Vincent Viafore and wouldn’t have done anything to kill him. She says she’s a good person, not a killer.

Authorities allege Graswald removed a drain plug from Viafore’s kayak in April. They say she pushed a floating paddle away from him after his kayak capsized.

Graswald was born in Latvia and lived in Connecticut. She told police during an interrogation she wanted her fiance dead and she was OK with him being gone.

She has pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter charges. Her attorney has said her statements to police were coerced.
