Bridgeport man accused of killing girlfriend due in court

BRIDGEPORT — The man accused of killing Jennifer Brelsford is expected to be arraigned Monday morning after he was extradited back to Connecticut from Vermont late last week.

Corey Ramos, 30, is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court Monday morning on a murder charge in connection with Brelsford’s death, according to police.

Brelsford was found dead in her Goodard Avenue home on Oct. 18. Detectives quickly identified Ramos as a person of interest, police said.

On Oct. 22, Detective Martin Heanue secured a warrant, charging Ramos with Brelsford’s murder, police said. He and another detective drove to Vermont and brought Ramos back to the city to be formally charged.

Ramos was held at the city’s police lockup over the weekend and will be transported to court later Monday morning.

After Brelsford’s death, city police issued a “be on the lookout” alert about Ramos to law enforcement agencies across New England and New York.

Investigators soon discovered Ramos traveled to Vermont and tried to illegally cross the border into Canada on Oct. 19, police said. Canadian law enforcement officers detained Ramos over the border before he was transferred into the custody of Vermont State Police.

In Vermont, authorities held Ramos on a fugitive from justice charge, based on a felony warrant out of Connecticut that charged Ramos with two counts of violating a protective order.
