Officers identified the victim as 46-year-old Patricia Torbicki, of Newington. Her husband, 45-year-old Michael Torbicki, remains hospitalized in serious condition.
On Thursday, police ordered a ‘shelter in place‘ for the neighborhood. A neighbor told News 8 that when she went to water her garden, she saw what she thought was a Halloween prop. When she went over, she found her neighbor dead in the front walkway of her house. She then called 911.
