Kyle Dube, accused of killing Nichole Cable, appears for his arraignment midday Wednesday, May 22, 2013.
BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Kyle Dube has been formally charged in the death of 15 year old Nichole Cable.
Cable went missing on May 12th. A little over a week later, law enforcement officials announced that they believed they had found her body and that they had made an arrest for her murder.
There was a heavy police presence at the Penobscot County Superior Court as a crush of people came to watch the proceedings. The legal procedure was moved to a larger courtroom because of the large turnout.
Many of the people who turned out to watch the arraignment were friends and family of Nichole Cable. Cable's mother, Kristine Willey, was escorted into the room by courthouse security. She was visibly emotional, crying and clutching a teddy bear.
At 11:50 AM Wednesday morning, Kyle Dube entered the courtroom. He was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans. He had no expression on his face.
The state asked that Kyle Dube be held without bail.
Dube's lawyer, Stephen Smith, asked the affidavit to be impounded. At a new conference Tuesday, State Police declined to answer many questions about the investigation, saying that media would have to wait for the affidavit. The Judge says he will make a decision about the affidavit by the end of the day.
Dube did not have to enter a plea.
Cable's family declined to speak with the media as they left the hearing.
