OLD ORCHARD BEACH (AP) – Two New Yorkers are facing murder charges in the killing of a man in Maine.

Maine state police say 47-year-old Rennie Cassimy was arrested Thursday outside his Brooklyn home.

Police are still searching for 44-year-old Jeffery L. Williams of West Hempstead, N.Y.

Winston George was found dead last week in the home he shared with his wife and teenage son.

Maine State Police say Williams was the victim’s brother-in-law.

The other suspect, Cassimy, lived in a building that the victim’s family owned. Maine police said Cassimy was being held in New York pending an extradition hearing.

Police say it’s believed the two suspects took a bus to New York last Friday, shortly after Williams’ death was reported.

The name of the defense attorney could not immediately be determined.
