Katrina Smith's Husband in Jail on $4,000,000 Bond Accused in Her Murder

By: Matt Mershon
Updated: November 21, 2012

~Snipped~

Iasparro made sure to thank the public for their search efforts in this missing person turned murder case. He says that was a big part of how they were able to bust Smith.

"Each item that was recovered, each interview that we conducted, piece by piece was all part of the larger picture here," said Iasparro.

Both the Sheriff's department and State's Attorney's office kept tight lipped about most of the actual details of the case. They are led to believe that Smith acted alone, but mention that the investigation is on going.

"I will not foreclose anything that might come to light down the road from the investigation," said Joe Bruscato, Winnebago County State's Attorney. "But at this point in time we are not alleging that this was done in concert with anyone else."

sitemama, his name was Todd C. Raprager, after he was convicted for arson in 1985, he changed his name to Todd C. Smith.

He set his family house on fire, his parents and his younger brother (half-brother), who was 12 years old at the time, were inside the house, they were able to escape unharmed before the house burned to the ground. Todd was 17 years old when that happened, he was sentenced to 30 months of probation.

According to news reports, he told the police he did it because he was having problems with his parents.

"In 1992, he legally changed his given name to Todd Smith, court records said."

I've read that his father's last name is Smith and that he was adopted by Mr. Raprager when he married his mother.

Todd Smith in court for first time since murder charges

ROCKFORD — Todd Smith appeared in court briefly today for the first time since he was charged Wednesday with the murder of his wife, Katrina.

Smith, 45, of Machesney Park, appeared in court by video link from the Winnebago County Jail, where he sat with his ear to a jail phone and listened as Judge John Truitt read the four counts of murder and one count of concealing a homicide that Smith faces.

Smith is charged with beating his wife to death on or around Oct. 22, when Katrina Smith, 30, first went missing, and with concealing the homicide by placing her body in the Rock River. Two of the counts allege “brutal or heinous behavior indicative of wanton cruelty” that could carry a 20- to 100-year prison sentence. Truitt asked whether Smith understood the charges.

“Yes, sir,” Smith replied.

"Monday, Katrina’s two siblings gathered with others at a family member’s southeast side Rockford home and spoke at length about the woman who, on a daily basis, brought hundreds of people together for one cause.

They said Katrina was a wife and stepmother to three girls ages 21, 18 and 16. She worked with her husband, Todd, in insurance for seven years before working in the human resources department at Camryn Company in Belvidere."

Excerpts from the article:'We want justice'

Just wondering if there were life insurance policies in Katrina's name leaving Todd as the beneficiary.

Smith appeared without an attorney and was appointed a public defender after he told Truitt he didn’t think he could afford to hire a private lawyer. He said he worked for Safe Money Strategies, Inc. in Machesney Park before his arrest, but did not have savings to hire a lawyer. The sound of his voice broke slightly as he told Truitt he and his family didn’t know if he’d be able to hire an attorney.

He will be back in court at 9 a.m. Dec. 21 for his formal arraignment and chance to enter a plea. He remains in jail on $4 million bond, which requires $400,000 posted for his release.

Guess that's the sort of thing one ought to consider prior to murdering one's wife. *Sob, sob. Cry, cry.* Not feelin' too sorry for him, but her poor family that will spend their first Christmas season without her - I just hope they get justice and that the system serves Katrina's memory properly, and that they're able to find peace and comfort following such unimaginable pain.

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- There are new details in the murder investigation of Machesney Park woman Katrina Smith. Prosecutors say she was beaten to death.

Today we finally got a copy of the complaint filed against Todd Smith and while the documents don't give a lot of information, they do confirm prosecutors think she was intentionally beaten to death and her husband was the one who dumped her body in the Rock River.

Prosecutors say the crime was brutal and heinous and they will try to prove to a jury that Smith should get extra time in prison.

ROCKFORD — Todd C. Smith has asked Judge John Truitt to try his first-degree murder case elsewhere, fearing that he cannot receive a fair trial in Winnebago County.

Today, Smith’s public defender, Margie O’Connor, filed motions for a change of venue and to suppress evidence. A change of venue is typically granted when attorneys have demonstrated that a defendant could not receive a fair trial because of extensive pretrial publicity.

Smith, of Machesney Park, has pleaded not guilty to all 11 counts listed in the bill of indictment

Todd Smith walks into court. (file photo)

ROCKFORD (WREX) - A Machesney Park man accused of killing Katrina Smith takes the stand to ask for some evidence to be thrown out. Todd Smith is accused of beating Katrina Smith to death and throwing her body in the Rock River last year. While Katrina Smith was a missing person's Todd Smith was questioned and police asked to search his home.  He agreed twice, signing two different consent to search papers with officers but had asked to be there when it happened.

Smith was before a judge today asking for what was found during the search to be suppressed. On the witness stand, Todd Smith described himself as stress out and that he was even confused at times. He says he wanted to help police search for Katrina so he signed the papers but he didn't really read the fine print.

Machesney Park's Todd Smith pleads not guilty in wife's killing, new charges filed

ROCKFORD — Winnebago County prosecutors have filed new charges that will raise the stakes at the trial of a Machesney Park man accused of beating his wife to death with a bat and throwing her body into the Rock River.

Todd C. Smith, 46, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges in a new, 22-count Winnebago County Grand Jury bill of the indictment. The new indictment replaces a December 2012 version of the charges and doubles the number of criminal counts a jury could eventually consider.

It also adds several versions of the murder charge with claims of “brutal or heinous behavior” that would result in a sentence of up to natural life in prison.

Smith has denied killing his 30-year-old wife, Katrina Smith, since his November 2012 arrest.

Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato’s office declined to comment on the new bill of indictment.

New twist in 2012 murder case, a look back at the killing of Katrina Smith

March 17, 2015

By Jim Hagerty
Rockford Advocate


The attorney for accused killer Todd Smith presented a new twist in the case Monday, one she says may cast doubt on the state’s charge that her client beat his wife to death in 2012.

Assistant Public Defender Margie O’Connor asked the court for sealed police reports involving a juvenile charged with stalking a family acquaintance two years before 30-year-old Katrina Smith was found beaten to death in the Rock River. O’Connor said there could be a link between the juvenile, who was charged with peeping in a Smith-neighbor’s bedroom window, and the homicide.

In a slightly surprising move, Judge John Truitt allowed O’Connor access to the records she requested based on Todd Smith’s claim that Katrina believed she was being stalked before she was killed. The juvenile is someone the Smiths knew from a church youth group.

Prosecutors say it was Todd Smith–and Smith alone–who killed his wife, and if anyone was stalking her it was him. It is believed Smith beat Katrina to death with a baseball bat in their Machesney Park home sometime during the evening of Monday, Oct. 22, 2012.
