BANGOR — A 20-year-old Orono man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of Nichole Cable, a 15-year-old girl from Glenburn whose body was discovered Monday night in a wooded area of Old Town, according to a Bangor attorney.

Kyle Dube is in custody at the Penobscot County Jail where he had begun serving a 90-day sentence on May 17 for an unrelated criminal speeding conviction, according to court records.

His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Stephen Smith, a Bangor attorney, confirmed Tuesday morning that he has been retained to represent the man.

The Maine State Police and Orono police were at the Dube’s residence at 5 Maplewood Ave. on Wednesday, according to neighbors James and Deborah Bowie. The Maine State Police Mobile Crime Unit was there Sunday and Monday, they said.

Stephen McCausland said Sunday night that he didn’t have any information on why the crime lab was there but the neighbors said the mother of that household told them that Nichole had been there about week earlier to visit and that she reported that to police.

Neighbors said Kyle reportedly had been using his father’s black Ford Ranger for work purposes. The truck has been impounded, State Police confirmed Tuesday.

Dube turned himself into police on Friday and is at Penobscot County Jail. He’s being held on two counts of speeding more than 30 mph over the limit, according to Penobscot County jail officials.
