BANGOR, Maine — An Orono man charged in the death of a 15-year-old girl from Glenburn has been charged with felony burglary and theft for a January break-in in Kenduskeag that involved a stolen gun, Penobscot County Deputy Chief Troy Morton said Thursday.
“In January of 2013 the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office investigated a residential burglary and theft at a home in Kenduskeag,” he said in a press release. “During the investigation Kyle Dube (20) of Orono became a person of interest.”
Dube was charged with murder in May in connection with the death of Nichole Cable, a teenage girl from Glenburn and Alton who was last seen alive on Mother’s Day. The two knew each other and were together the night before her death.
Dube is accused of luring Cable out of her mother’s home by using someone else’s identity on Facebook, then killing her in what he claimed was an abduction gone wrong. Her body was found late May 20 in a wooded area in Old Town after Dube’s girlfriend and brother told police where Dube said he had left it.
In June, members of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from Maine State Police and Orono Police Department, searched Dube’s residence in Orono looking for property stolen during the Kenduskeag burglary.
“During the search a sheriff’s office K-9 located one of the stolen firearms from the Kenduskeag burglary, along with other items that matched the description of property stolen from a separate residential burglary being investigated by the Maine State Police,” Morton said.
Penobscot County Detective Robert Jordan charged Dube with Class B burglary and Class B theft by unauthorized taking on Tuesday.
A Superior Court justice in June granted a defense motion for Dube to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is competent to stand trial. Dube pleaded not guilty on June 19 to one count each of kidnapping and murder.
