UPTON — Maine State Police on Saturday charged a Limington man with murder in the shooting death of his wife last week.
Patrick Dapolito, 39, was arrested at the State Police Barracks in Gray at about 5:30 p.m. Dapolito had arranged through his attorney to turn himself in, police said. The suspect was taken to the York County Jail in Alfred. He was scheduled to make his first court appearance on the murder charge Monday in York County Superior Court in Alfred.
Dapolito is charged with killing his wife, Kelly Winslow-Dapolito, 30, at the couple's home on Mike's Way in Limington. Police said the shooting took place on March 16.
Dapolito reported his wife missing the night of March 18. The next day, state police began searching several locations, including her home. They found Winslow-Dapolito's body March 19 on property located off Route 26 in the Oxford County town of Upton. The property is owned by Dapolito's father.
Police interviewed Dapolito the day his wife's body was found and said he had cooperated with the investigation.
The State Medical Examiner's Office said Winslow-Dapolito died from a gunshot wound to the head.
The couple had been married about six months.
