BANGOR, Maine — A 20-year-old Orono man was indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury on one count of intentional or knowing murder and kidnapping in the Mother’s Day death of Nichole Cable of Alton and Glenburn.

Kyle Dube was charged May 21 in connection with the 15-year-old girl’s death on May 12, the day she disappeared, in Glenburn.

He is being held without bail at the Penobscot County Jail.

An arraignment date has not been set.

Details about her death and what led investigators to Dube were not released before the grand jury met Wednesday.

Cable’s funeral service drew about 300 people Monday at Bangor Baptist Church. Her private burial was held Tuesday at a cemetery in Alton.

Assistant Attorney General Andrew Benson said last week that the evidence would show that Dube was using electronic media but declined to elaborate. When asked if Dube had used social media sites to facilitate his alleged crime, Benson refused to comment.

The girl disappeared from her home the night of May 12 and was reported missing the next morning. More than 500 people turned out May 19 to help search for clues to the teen’s disappearance.

If convicted of murder, Dube faces between 25 years and life in prison.
