Police say Keyworth caught a train around 11:30 p.m. on May 30, 2004 from Bridgeport to Watertown. At the time, Keyworth was employed by Job Corps in Massachusetts, but she had taken the train to Waterbury to visit family and friends, CNN reports.
“Detectives from the Major Crime Squad have worked tirelessly over the years on this murder investigation,” the Waterbury Police Department said in a statement.
Robinson has a $ 2 million bond. It is currently unknown if he knew the victim prior to the murder. In 2004 he lived about five blocks from Keyworth and died.
Robinson’s attorney said that Robinson had not admitted his guilt and that the case was not over.
“I think he won the day in court,” said attorney Martin J. Minnella. “People shouldn’t come to a conclusion just because there is an arrest in the case.”
A $ 50,000 reward has already been offered for information that contributed to the arrest. Prices were reportedly still on the table. Anyone with information on the case should call detectives at 203-574-6911.
