A 30-year-old man is facing manslaughter charges in connection with the death of a woman found unrsponsive in a car on an entrance ramp to Interstate 95 in Fairfield last April.
Authorities believe Brenda Hernandez, 22, of Bridgeport, was having an argument with a passenger in the backseat of the car and may have been trying to jump out of the moving vehicle.
Police said the passenger, identified as Cesar "David" Martinez, 30, restrained Hernandez when she "suddenly went limp."
An ambulance rushed Hernandez to Saint Vincent's Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to police.
Martinez was arrested Friday morning and charged with first-degree manslaughter. He was held on $250,000 bond and is due in court Nov. 24.
