A man serving time in a federal prison in Oklahoma was extradited to Connecticut to face murder charges. The New Haven Register reported that Luis Rodriguez, 53, was presented in Superior Court Wednesday morning, charged in the 2001 strangulation of Kelsey Monahon. Monahan, 28, 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 unrelated weapons charges.
