Oklahoma inmate extradited to face murder charge

June 12, 2013

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A 53-year-old man serving time in a federal prison in Oklahoma has been extradited to Connecticut to face murder charges.

The New Haven Register reports Luis Rodriguez was presented in Superior Court Wednesday morning, charged in the May, 2001 strangulation of 28-year-old Kelsey Monahon.

Monahan, who was one month pregnant, was found bound, gagged and unconscious by her husband in their Milford apartment on May 25, 2001.

She died three days later at Bridgeport Hospital.

Prosecutors identified Rodriguez as a suspect in 2011, but he was already behind bars, serving time in Oklahoma on an unrelated weapons charges. They have not said what led them to Rodriguez.

He was extradited to Connecticut on Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if he has obtained an attorney.
