Police Arrest Man Accused of Killing Woman in North Haven Hit-and-Run

A Meriden man who is accused of hitting and killing a mother who was walking with her sons in North Haven back in March has been arrested.

Officers arrested 40-year-old Mark Rubino, of Meriden, on Friday.

His arrest stems from a hit-and-run crash in March.

Police were called to Ridge Road near Hickory Hill on March 11 after getting a report of a crash involving a pedestrian.

The driver had fled the scene of the crash, which killed Maureen Munzner, of North Haven, authorities said.

Munzner was known in the North Haven school community, where she volunteered and helped with the school theater program.

After the crash, investigators said they worked with the South Central Connecticut Traffic Unit, interviewed numerous witnesses, reviewed surveillance footage, obtained multiple search warrants and collected physical evidence to be examined by the State Forensic Laboratory.

Through the investigation, police were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Rubino and he was taken into custody on Friday.

He is being charged with evasion of responsibility in operating a motor vehicle causing death, misconduct with a motor vehicle, no insurance and failure to drive in the proper lane.

Rubino is being held on a $50,000 bond.
