The lawyer for an Orono man charged with killing a 15-year-old girl from Glenburn wants a judge to keep affidavits and search warrants with details about the case under seal.Stephen Smith, the attorney for 20-year-old Kyle Dube, filed the motion Friday, a day after news organizations challenged a judge’s decision to impound a state police affidavit.The document explains why Dube was charged this week in the death of Nichole Cable.Smith says he’d like to keep the items sealed until jury selection because of threats made against Dube and concerns about Dube’s right to a fair trial, he also says there are privacy concerns.The Associated Press and The Portland Press Herald contend that probable cause affidavits may be sealed only under rare circumstances that don’t apply in this case.
