    WATERBURY, Connecticut (WFSB) — Police in Waterbury arrested a man in connection to a cold case murder.

Willie Robinson, 52 of Waterbury, was arrested Friday, accused of murdering 16-year-old Jessica Keyworth back on June 1, 2004.

On that day, police found Keyworth deceased in the stairwell of a multi-unit residential building.

The office of the medical examiner determined that she had died from, what was described as, asphyxia by neck compression.

Her death was ruled a homicide.

After years of investigating, police identified Robinson as the person responsible for Keyworth’s death and were granted a warrant for his arrest.

Robinson was arrested this past Friday and charged with one count of murder.

He is being held on $2 million bond.
