HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police have identified a man suspected of killing the sister of a retired Bristol police captain in her home and then killing himself in a Hartford motel.

Police say they found 59-year-old Gale McIntyre dead in her Bristol home Monday night. Officials say it appears that McIntyre, who is the sister of retired city police Capt. Dan McIntyre, died of injuries from blunt force trauma.

Tips led investigators to focus on McIntyre’s 44-year old neighbor, Robert Newman. Newman was found dead late Monday. Officials say he hanged himself.

An investigation remains ongoing.

Court records indicate Newman had been out on bond on charges he sexually assaulted a woman in his car after offering to give her a ride. Newman was scheduled to enter a plea in that case next month.
