Emily Todd, 25, of Bethel, was found dead near a boat ramp at Seaview and Newfield Avenues in Bridgeport on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2018. Police said she was shot in the back of the head and neck area and died at the scene.
Police charged Brandon Roberts and he was taken into custody in Ohio.
The murder weapon was later recovered by the Cleveland, Ohio police department after Roberts sold the gun on the street when he fled Connecticut following Todd’s murder, officials said.
Roberts waived extradition and was returned to Connecticut. He was found guilty by a jury of murder, felony murder, robbery in the first degree and carrying a pistol without a permit, according to state Division of Criminal Justice.
Roberts is scheduled to be sentenced on June 24 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
