BRIDGEPORT - A former Stratford woman appeared in court this afternoon, accused in connection with the murder of a man she claims sexually assaulted her.

Jessica Nichols, 23, is charged in the death of Daron Green back in June.

A witness says he saw a car pull up to Denver Avenue and Denver Court in Bridgeport and when the car left, the witness says a body was lying there.  Police believe Nichols was the one driving that car.

Authorities say Nichols claims she was assaulted in her home by Green in February,  but she did not report the incident to police because she was facing charges in an unrelated case and was afraid to come forward.

Nichols is being held on $1-million bond.
