NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has been charged with sexually assaulting and killing a 55-year-old woman.

Steven Flood was charged Friday with felony murder, aggravated sexual assault and other offenses in the death of Susan Guido, whose body was found May 2 in her New Fairfield home. Police say Guido died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Police say they found the 32-year-old Flood, of New Fairfield, camping in the woods in Union a few days after Guido’s death.

Police say Flood was driving the victim’s car. He was first charged with third-degree larceny and later charged with killing Guido.

Flood’s bond was set at $1 million on Friday. The public defender’s office says Flood suffers from a disability and requested that he get medical attention while in jail.
