A man from Verona Island accused of setting fire to another man’s home in Orrington has been indicted by the Penobscot County grand jury for aggravated attempted murder. Oscar Nunez, 25, is also charged with arson and criminal threatening. Prosecutors say Nunez poured gasoline around a man’s home in Orrington in late July and then set it on fire. We’re told he also pointed a gun at a home and fired several rounds. Nunez has previously been charged with drug crimes. Prosecutors say the case in Orrington stems from a dispute Nunez was having with another drug dealer. The victim and Nunez’s girlfriend are both facing drug charges.
