Augusta Murder Update 

An Augusta man has now been arrested and charged with murder in the death of a 72-year-old woman who lived in the same apartment building. State and city police arrested Raymond Clark Tuesday night. This morning Clark was in superior court charged with murdering his neighbor Audrey Lou Benn. A court affidavit goes into detail of how Benn was found. Naked from the waist down. She had what appeared to be a sash from a bathrobe tied around her neck and tissue stuffed in each nostril. The medical examiner’s office concludes benn was strangled. Documents continue stating Clark admitted he had killed benn because according to him, she had confronted him about being a sex offender and came at him with a knife. A knife was found by police. A psychiatric evaluation will be done to determine if Clark is competent to stand trial. He is being held without bail at the Kennebec County jail.
