Windsor Locks Woman Charged With Her Father's Murder: Police

A Windsor Locks woman was arrested Friday accused of murdering her father.

Jessica Keene, 24, was taken into custody Friday evening at the Travel Inn Motel in Hartford. The arrest came two days after Windsor Locks police discovered the decomposing body of her 51 year-old father, Michael Keene, hidden inside an apartment on Main Street that they shared with others.

Police said they were called to the apartment Wednesday morning to investigate a foul odor by someone inside the apartment who was not Jessica Keene.

Michael Keene died of stab wounds to the upper neck and torso, according to police.

He had been reported missing on Thanksgiving, but was last seen on Nov. 11, police said.

A man believed to be in his 50s has been found dead in a Windsor Locks apartment on Main Street and police said they believe the body is that of a man who was reported missing on Thanksgiving.

Police had been to the home to take information when they received the initial missing person report, but said they did not see anything that indicated a body could be concealed inside.

Jessica Keene was identified as a person of interest early in their investigation, but more arrests could be made, police said.

Keene is being held under $1 million bail and is expected to be arraigned Monday in Enfield, and then transferred to Hartford Superior Court.
