Second Suspect in Killing of Old Town Woman Appears in Court 

A second arrest has been made in connection with the murder of a 19-year-old woman from old town. Holly Boutilier’s body was found in a shack by the Penobscot River in Bangor early last month.Twenty-seven-year-old Justin Ptaszynski, described by police as a Bangor transient, made his first court appearance today.Ptaszynski was arrested earlier today.He’s charged with murder and hindering apprehension or prosecution.Thirty-four-year-old Colin Koehler of Bangor had previously been charged with murder in the case. He was indicted by a Penobscot County Grand Jury in August.According to court records, surveillance video from Hollywood Slots shows two men leaving the crime scene.In an interview with Bangor Police, Ptaszynski said he was the second subject in the surveillance video.Police say he told them he had no prior knowledge that Koehler planned to kill Boutilier.A court affidavit states Ptaszynski says the three of them had gone on a walk along the Penobscot River when Koehler pulled out a sword.The affidavit says Boutilier died from multiple stab wounds to her abdomen and a laceration to her neck.”But I think it’s worth and important to note that it is not him who is alleged to have wielded the weapon which caused Miss Boutilier’s death,” said Ptaszynski’s Attorney Jeff Silverstein.”The investigation has been ongoing since the time of the initial interviews with Ptaszynski and the police have developed additional information,” said Assistant Attorney General Andrew Benson.Both Ptaszynski and Koehler are being held without bail at the Penobscot County Jail.A bail hearing for Ptaszynski has been scheduled for next month.
