AUBURN, Maine — Police arrested 34-year-old David Barnett of Bristol, Connecticut in Rockville, Maryland Friday morning on a warrant for murder in relation to an Auburn double homicide, a news release issued by Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says.
The double homicide took place at a residence at 49 4th Street in Auburn, where 21-year-old Kelzie Caron and 21-year-old Pierre Langlois of Connecticut were found dead on June 6 of this year.
According to the release, Barnett was taken into custody by police without incident near an apartment complex in Rockville. Barnett also holds a nationwide warrant out of New York for "probation revocation on a prior robbery charge," the release says.
Barnett was reportedly transported to Montgomery County Jail and will be held there pending extradition proceeding.
