20 Year Sentence For Man Convicted In Cold Case Murder Of Milford Woman

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A man who killed a pregnant woman in Milford in 2001 and was charged a decade later in a cold case investigation has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

 The New Haven Register reports that 53-year-old Luis Rodriguez was sentenced Wednesday in Milford Superior Court for the killing of 28-year-old Kelsey Monahon. He pleaded guilty to first degree manslaughter last month.
Monahon was nearly a month pregnant when her husband found her unconscious, bound and gagged in their apartment. She died three days later.
Authorities say Rodriguez went to the couple’s apartment to collect a debt for a friend owed money by Monahon’s husband, who wasn’t home at the time. Police said Rodriguez beat and strangled Monahon and stole at least $700 from a safe.
