Kyle Dube Pleads Not Guilty to Murder and Kidnapping Charges

A man accused of using a phony Facebook profile to lure a 15-year-old girl to her death pleaded not guilty today to murder and kidnapping charges.

Kyle Dube Pleads Not Guilty to Murder and Kidnapping Charges

Kyle Dube, 20, of Orono, entered the pleas during his arraignment at the Penobscot Judicial Center. Defense lawyer Stephen Smith requested a psychological evaluation for Dube, who was returned to jail after the brief court appearance.

Dube is accused of creating a fake Facebook profile and using it to set up a meeting with Nichole Cable, of Glenburn, before killing her and hiding her body on May 12. Police say Dube told others that he’d intended to abduct Nichole and later come to her rescue.

Nichole Cable’s remains were found in nearby Old Town eight days after she disappeared. Nichole was reported missing May 13 by her mother, who said she had left the night before to meet a friend at the end of their road but hadn’t returned. Dube told others that he bound Nichole and put her in the back of his father’s pickup truck and that he later discovered she was dead, authorities said.

An autopsy determined she died from asphyxiation. Dozens of law enforcement officers, using aircraft and dogs, and hundreds of civilian volunteers spent days searching for Nichole, whose body was found the night of May 20.

About 300 people turned out for her funeral.
