What state police considered a suspicious death on Saturday has led to the arrest of a Peru man. 

Paul Orchard (33) was arrested as he was discharged from the Rumford Hospital Sunday night. Orchard is charged in connection with the death of his mother-in-law, Paula Nuttall (57), who died in the home the two shared.

Additional information on the woman's death and the reason for Orchard's hospitalization is expected to be released with Orchard's first court appearance either tomorrow or Wednesday. He’s being held at the Oxford County Jail.
