Millstone Power Plant, Nuclear Security Officer, James F. Hodgdon Jr

A 56-year-old nuclear security officer at the Millstone Power Station has been charged with the murder of his wife and is being held on $1 million bond, according to statements made in court Tuesday.

James F. Hodgdon is accused of shooting and killing his wife, Dianna Hodgdon, 58, at the couple’s home at 6 Forestview Drive in Norwich on Labor Day.

According to a police report, James Hodgdon admitted to shooting his wife in their garage as they wrestled for control of a loaded shotgun after arguing all day. He told police that he had contemplated suicide, and had called his supervisor at the Millstone Nuclear Power Station, where he worked as a security guard, and said that if he didn’t show up at work, there were letters in his locker to be sent out. He also posted a “goodbye” on his Facebook page, according to the report.

Millstone Power Station, located in southeast Connecticut, generates enough electricity from its two operational units to power about 500,000 homes.

Unit 1 began commercial operation in December 1970, and ceased operating in July 1998. It is being decommissioned. Unit 2 began commercial operation in December 1975, and it generates 869.5 megawatts. Unit 3, which began operating in April 1986, generates 1,210 megawatts. Dominion acquired the station in March 2001.

Situated three miles west-southwest of New London, Millstone was named after the site’s historic granite quarry that produced high-quality millstones and structural building granite.
