Standish Man Charged with Murder for the Death of his Girlfriend
A Standish man is charged with murder, accused of killing his girlfriend in June.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the Maine State Police arrested Brandon Libby, 34 of Standish, on Friday afternoon in Hollis. Libby had an active warrant out of Cumberland County, charging him with murder. The warrant was the result of an indictment handed down Thursday by a Grand Jury.
The charge stems from the death of Amanda Brown, 29 of Standish. Members of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office were called to a home at 35 Dow Road in Standish on the morning of June 16th, as part of an assault investigation, and found Brown deceased at the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and determined that the cause of death was a gunshot and it was ruled a homicide.
Police say Brandon and Amanda were domestic partners at the time of her death.
