Man sentenced for 2018 killing of Bethel woman

A man has been sentenced for the 2018 killing of a Bethel woman.  29-year old Brandon Roberts was ordered to 60 years for murder, 15 years for robbery with a deadly weapon and five years for carrying a pistol without a permit. The terms will be served concurrently.  A jury in April found Robert guilty of killing 25-year-old Emily Todd, whom he met through an online dating app.  She broke up with him, changed her number that day, but he lured her to a boat ramp in Bridgeport.  Police say Roberts stole her car, cellphone and credit cards and emptied her bank account.  Todd’s family reported her missing on December 9, 2018 after she failed to show up for work at Saint John Paul II Center in Danbury, a senior center where she was a therapeutic recreation assistant. Todd was a 2011 graduate of Bethel High School and a 2016 graduate of Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass.  Roberts was arrested at his father’s home in Ohio on December 14 and later confessed to Bridgeport Police that he had killed Todd and shot another woman near Washington Park a year earlier.
