A Connecticut man accused of killing a woman and putting her body in a freezer in 2010 has pleaded no contest to a murder charge.
The Day of New London reports that 51-year-old Luis Otero entered the plea in New London Superior Court in exchange for a 28 1/2 year prison sentence.
Otero is accused of killing his Groton housemate, 50-year-old Madeline Brisson. An arrest warrant said Otero told a friend he “flipped out” when Brisson told him to move out of her house and implied a lesbian affair with his daughter.
“The guy promised her that he was going to kill her and put her in the freezer and she told me this after they got in an argument one time. She also told her sisters that live in Florida, ‘If I ever come up missing look in the freezer,’” Brisson’s friend Johnny Robinson told News8-WTNH.
The state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled that Brisson died of blunt traumatic injuries and asphyxia.
Otero has been held in lieu of $2 million bond since his arrest.
His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 9.
