WATERVILLE (AP) — The suspect in the fatal stabbing of a 92-year-old Waterville man is headed to court this week.

Authorities said 44-year-old Roland Cummings is scheduled make his first appearance on a murder charge either Monday or Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta.

Cummings was arrested Friday in connection with the May 23 death of Aurele Fecteau, who was found stabbed to death in his bed at his home.

Police said Cummings used to do odd jobs around Fecteau’s house.

Cummings’ sister, Deborah Berry of Waterville, told the Morning Sentinel that her brother has been struggling with drug addiction. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Fecteau was a father of seven and an avid outdoorsman.
