Updated 11:26 am EST, Wednesday, November 20, 2019





STAMFORD — South End homeless man Robert Simmons, 51, has been arrested in the home invasion and murder of 93-year-old Isabella Mehner in her Cove Road home in late September.

Simmons was charged with murder, felony murder and home invasion. He is being held on a $2,000,000 bond.

On Sept. 25, at about 8 p.m., police responded to 565 Cove Road for a deceased elderly female who appeared to have fallen down a staircase. Through further investigation and with the assistance of the Office of Chief Medical Examiner it was determined that the injuries sustained by Mehner were not consistent with a fall down the stairs and her death was classified as a homicide.

Police also noted that there some personal items of Mehner’s that went missing from the home located on the corner of Cove Road and Willowbrook Avenue.

Police say they found video of Simmons in the area on the day Mehner was killed and used DNA analysis to match a spot of blood found on his pants to Mehner.

This was not a random act of violence. The suspect was familiar with the victim and her home from some previous ‘odd jobs’ for which he had been hired.
