Maine Man Allegedly Kills Teenage Girl He Tried to Fake Kidnap to Fake Rescue

Charged with murder


A man lured a teenage girl out of her house by using a fake Facebook account in an attempt to stage her kidnapping and rescue so he could look like a hero but ended up killing her, a police affidavit released Wednesday said.

Kyle Dube was indicted Wednesday on charges of murder and kidnapping in the death of 15-year-old Nichole Cable, whose body was found in a wooded area of Old Town this month a week after she vanished.
