CT man Brandon Roberts gets 80 years for 2018 killing of Emily Todd, court officials say

A judge sentenced Roberts to 80 years Friday for killing Emily Todd.

A man was sentenced to 80 years Friday for shooting and killing a young therapist from Bethel more than three years ago.

State Superior Court Judge Alex Hernandez sentenced Brandon Roberts, 29, to 60 years for murder, 15 years for first-degree robbery with a deadly weapon and five years for carrying a pistol without a permit. The sentence will be served concurrent, according to the Fairfield Judicial District’s clerk’s office.

A jury found Roberts guilty in April of killing 25-year-old Emily Todd.

Todd, of Bethel, and Roberts met through an online dating app, but after a few days, she broke up with him. On Dec. 8, 2018, he lured her to a boat ramp and shot her once in the back of the head, authorities said.

He then stole her car, cellphone and credit cards and went to an ATM to withdraw $400 from her bank account, according to police and statements made during the trial.

Roberts is in custody with the state Department of Correction, the clerk’s office said Friday.
