A man from Madison is facing charges for the death of a man he had previously lived with.
Who is the Suspect?
Roland Flood, 61, of Madison is charged with murder for the death of Mark Trabue, 57, of Anson.
Where Was the Murder?
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the charge stems from a murder investigation that began on July 8th. It was around 8:00 that Saturday night when the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit Central was called to assist the Somerset County Sheriff's Office in a death investigation. Mark Trabue had been found deceased in his vehicle at a cemetery on East Houghton Street in Madison. His body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta, where his death was ruled a homicide.
Officials are not saying how Trabue died.
What Was the Connection Between the Two Men?
Detectives with the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit Central arrested Roland Flood on September 1st and charged him with murder. Officials say Flood had lived with Trabue in Anson shortly before the younger man was killed. Flood was transported to the Somerset County Jail and will be arraigned at a later date.
