BANGOR, Maine (AP) – A man has been taken into custody in connection with the death of a 19-year-old woman found dead in a shack along the Penobscot River in Maine.

Thirty-four-year-old Colin Koehler of Bangor was taken after police used tear gas to drive him from his apartment Tuesday. Poilce said Koehler refused to open his door when sought for questioning about the homicide of Holly Boutilier of Old Town, who was found dead in a shack hidden among trees along the river near a bridge Sunday.

The Bangor Daily News reports Koehler was taken to the Bangor police station, where he was questioned for more than four hours before being arrested in Boutilier’s murder. He was then taken to Penobscot County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
