A Machias man is in jail, accused of two counts of murder.
The two victims called police to report a shooting. By the time help arrived they were dead.
Police say 25-year-old Richard Widdecomb Jr. of Machias went to 29-year-old Katie Cabana’s home in Marshfield.
There police found the bodies of Cabana and her friend 41-year-old Aaron Settipani of Eastport. Police later found Widdecomb back at his home in Machias.
Part of Rt. 1 was shut down for over an hour while police surrounded the home.
State police were able to talk Widdecomb out of his home. They say he surrendered quietly and was questioned for nearly 6 hours. He is being held at the Washington County Jail.
Widdecomb is expected to make a court appearance sometime this week. Three children were inside the home when the shootings occurred.
