Waterbury Mother, Daughter Were Shot to Death: Medical Examiner

A 29-year-old Waterbury woman and her 9-year-old daughter found dead in their home last week were shot to death, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Chaquinequea Brodie and her daughter both died of gunshot wounds to the head and neck, the medical examiner said.

Brodie's 2-year-old daughter was found physically uninjured at the scene.

Brodie's boyfriend, Anthony Rutherford, was arraigned on murder and other charges Monday during an emotional hearing in Waterbury Superior Court. Shouting erupted, and a woman passed out and was treated by paramedics.

A judge set Rutherford's bail at $5.25 million and continued the case to Sept. 27.
