Anielka and Frederick Allen had agreed to split all house-related bills and said that neither spouse would owe child support or alimony. They also agreed that Frederick Allen would keep the couple’s house at 16 North St., where police say Anielka Allen, 37, was killed Thursday.
In the wake of Maine’s first homicide of the year, which police have classified as a domestic violence homicide, the divorce paperwork filed in Newport District Court also listed a different address for Frederick Allen as recently as Dec. 20 — at a property about two miles away from the couple’s North Street home where police said the Allens had lived since 2012.
Investigators continued to work at the North Street home on Friday. Frederick Allen, 40, made his first court appearance Friday afternoon at the Penobscot Judicial Center. He will be held without bail until he appears in court again Feb. 20. He has not confessed to killing his wife, according to his attorney, Jeffrey Toothaker of Ellsworth.
