Two Connecticut Suspects Accused Of Murdering Woman, Going On Spending Spree With Stolen Credit Cards
Two Connecticut suspects were arrested on murder charges after they allegedly killed a woman and then racked up purchases on her stolen credit cards, authorities said.
Shortly after 10 p.m. on Nov. 5, relatives of Shelley Stamp grew concerned after they hadn’t heard from her, so they checked on her and found her unresponsive in her Waterbury apartment, WFSB reported.
Police responding to a report of the 34-year-old woman’s death, located her lying on the floor, and an autopsy determined foul play was involved.
An investigation determined the victim had been in a dispute earlier in the day with Heather Anderson, 35, and Shannon Gritzbach, 37, police said.
The altercation between the women allegedly became physical and led to Stamp’s death, according to investigators.
Anderson and Gritzbach are accused of stealing the victim’s credit cards and making multiple purchases with them.
The two suspects each face charges of murder, conspiracy to commit home invasion, first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, sixth-degree larceny, illegal use of credit cards, and first-degree burglary.
Both were being held on $1 million bonds.
