TURNER, Maine — State police are investigating the death of a woman in Turner.

Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland says Androscoggin County sheriff’s deputies were called to her house at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, where 38-year-old Jane Tetreault was found dead.

Police are calling the death suspicious.

McCausland says Tetreault’s husband, 45-year-old Brian Nichols, was taken into custody by deputies a short distance from the house and is being questioned.

He says a 17-year-old was home at the time of the shooting and was not injured. Another son was not at home. Both were with other relatives as of Saturday afternoon.

McCausland also said in a press release Saturday that State Medical Examiner Dr. Margaret Greenwald came to the scene and has scheduled the autopsy of Tetreault’s body for Sunday.

State police detectives spent the day Saturday processing the house for evidence and expect that work to continue on Sunday.

The couple worked for the local Service Master franchise in Lewiston, according to McCausland.
