MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - A woman is describing the day she found her daughter beaten to death in their home as a murder trial gets under way in Milford.

Matthew Pugh is charged with murder in the death of 26-year-old aspiring actress Alexandra Ducsay.

Linda Ducsay told the jury in Milford Superior Court on Tuesday that she knew something was wrong on the day of May 19, 2006, when she returned to the house in Milford to find the gate open and her dog outside.

Pugh was charged with the slaying in 2012.

Ducsay testified that her daughter met Pugh when she was a teenager and they continued a relationship even after he went to prison. She said her daughter broke off the relationship eventually but continued to stay in touch with him.
