Keith Maynard confessed to tossing a blanket over the face of his fiancee on July 1st and hitting her with a baseball bat. Not getting a good look at the intruder, Ida Maynard didn't know that it allegedly was the man she would marry a few short days later.
But Ida Maynard soon started having suspicions that her attacker was he future husband. She says she thought some of the clothing worn by her attacker matched some of the clothes owned by her fiancee. As for a possible motive, court papers released on Thursday hint that Keith may have been involved with another woman and was getting cold feet about getting hitched.
Keith Maynard was an alderman in Ansonia. He resigned his post a few days before his arrest. He is on leave from his job with the Connecticut Department of Transportation. He is next scheduled to appear in court on September 4th.
