Watertown police have named a suspect in the killing a 70-year-old Watertown woman.
William Bayarinas, 48, was named by police in connection with the death of Maryann Stanisz-Kibbe.
Stanisz-Kibbe was found dead in her home on Bushnell Avenue in Watertown on Jan. 9. They believe she was killed on the night of Jan. 7 or early in the morning on Jan. 8, according to Police Chief John Gavallas.
Her gray PT Cruiser was missing and later found in Waterbury in the parking lot next to the LIT Ultra-Lounge, according to the police.
Waterbury police arrested Bayarinas and another man last week on charges of burglarizing a pizza shop in the city.
Investigators first tied the pair to the PT Cruiser and then on Thursday, they were able to determine evidence found at Stanisz-Kibbe's home tied Bayarinas to the scene.
Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Bayarinas. He is currently being held in prison and is expected to be arrested on Tuesday, police said.
Bayaranis is facing charges of murder, felony murder, home invasion, first-degree burglary, and third-degree larceny.
He is expected to be arrested and arraigned in Waterbury Superior Court on Tuesday.
Police said they are trying to locate a 26" Dynex LCD TV stolen from Stanisz-Kibbe's home that may have been sold to a person or business located nearby. Police stressed the buyer is not in trouble, but they are trying to locate the item.
The second man arrested for the Waterbury burglary, Paul Crampton, has not been charged in connection with the homicide.
