Man charged with murder in Oakfield deaths

OAKFIELD, Maine -  Maine State Police have charged a Houlton man with two counts of murder  in connection with the deaths of an Oakfield couple on Sept. 23, inside their home.  Detectives informed Matthew Davis, 32, on Sept. 24 at the State Police barracks in Houlton, where he had been transported for questioning from the Aroostook County Jail. The decision to file murder charges was made by the Attorney General’s Office.

At this point in the investigation, there is no known connection between the couple and Davis, who works as a carpenter.  The State Fire Marshal’s Office also says Davis is the suspect in the three fires that are being  investigated, at the Oakfield home of Pratt, at the Katahdin Forest Products facility in Oakfield, and a pickup truck lit on fire near a boat launching ramp in nearby Island Falls.

Davis will appear in Aroostook Superior Court in Houlton at 11:30 on Sept. 25.
