Miss Connecticut wins Miss USA contest in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (WFSB/AP) -

A 25-year-old Connecticut resident has won the title of Miss USA in Las Vegas.

Erin Brady won the beauty pageant at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino last night after strutting in a white sparkly gown and answering a question about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision upholding widespread DNA tests.

Asked if she agreed with the decision, Brady said she did.

As Miss USA, Brady not only gets the crown, but also is provided an apartment in New York City for a year.

Brady studies finance at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain.

She said she will spend her title reign touring the country raising breast and ovarian cancer awareness.
