Police Believe Woman Slain in Old Town Was Pregnant

New details are emerging about a couple killed in a domestic violence situation in Old Town Wednesday night. It was around 6pm when Christopher Ouellette called police and told them he had stabbed his girlfriend, April Haskell. When police arrived, a confrontation ensued between Ouellette and State Police Trooper Barry Meserve. Ouellette was killed in that confrontation.

Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said in a press release tonight that Ouellette and Haskell had been a couple for about six years. They had two children together, and those were the two who were released by Ouellette to police before the shooting. They were released to relatives. McCausland said it’s believed that Haskell was pregnant with their third child.

Haskell worked as a housekeeper at the Quality Inn in Bangor. Ouellette was not employed.

An autopsy on Thursday revealed that Ouellette died of a single gunshot wound to the head. The autopsy on Haskell is scheduled for Friday.

Detectives continue to piece together the chain of events leading up to Haskell’s death. At the same time, the Attorney General’s office is investigating the shooting of Ouellette by Trooper Meserve. He’s been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure following a police-involved shooting.
