Alleged Sussman Estate Murderer Arraigned

Jan 5 2010 | 11:15am ET

The man charged with murdering his daughter on the Connecticut estate of Paloma Partners CEO Donald Sussman was arraigned in Stamford yesterday.

Adam Dobrzanski, who works as a live-in landscaper for the Sussmans, did not enter a plea. He was transferred from Greenwich police headquarters, where he has been held on $1 million bond since his arrest on Thursday, to a state prison. His bail remains $1 million.

According to police, Dobrzanski killed his 20-year-old daughter Amanda and then tried to kill himself on Wednesday night. It is believed that the 55-year-old Polish native, who was described as having a history of mental illness at yesterday’s court appearance, was upset about his impending divorce from his wife of 28 years, Renata, who works as a cook for the Sussmans and was travelling with them in the Caribbean when her husband allegedly hatched the murder-suicide plot.

Also yesterday, the state medical examiner ruled Amanda Dobrzanski’s death a homicide. Her throat was slashed. Adam Dobrzanski also stabbed himself several times, but was treated at a Stamford hospital and released.
