Milford police have arrested a 40-year-old former Hamden man suspected in the murder of Alexandra Ducsay in 2006.
Ducsay, 26, was found dead in her home on Booth Bay Street in Milford on May 19, 2006.
She had suffered significant head trauma, according to police. An autopsy performed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined that Ducsay died of blunt force trauma and her death was ruled a homicide.
Police said Ducsay's body was found in an area of her home "consistent with a violent crime scene." The Connecticut Post reports that she was found at the bottom of the basement stairs.
Police said they have obtained an arrest warrant charging Matthew Pugh, 40, with one count of murder and one count of first-degree burglary.
According to police, Pugh was Ducsay's ex-boyfriend and had been accused of threatening her for years after she ended their relationship.
She had written a letter to the state Department or Correction telling them about the situation, according to the affidavit.
Pugh, who is incarcerated at Garner Correctional Facility in Newtown on unrelated charges, was arrested on Wednesday.
He is being held on $2 million bond and is being arraigned at 2 p.m. in Milford Superior Court.
Ducsay, known as Zandra, was an aspiring singer, model and actress, according to the obituary.
