Dr. Margaret Greenwald released her findings about the death of the 15-year-old girl from Glenburn and Alton on Thursday after consulting with the Maine State Police crime lab, which has been reviewing evidence in the case, according to a press release issued by state police.

The man accused of killing Cable is scheduled to be arraigned at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

Kyle Dube, 20 , of Orono is expected to plead not guilty to one count each of kidnapping and murder. He is accused of luring Cable out of her mother’s home by using someone else’s identity on Facebook, then killing her in an abduction gone wrong.

Superior Court Justice William Anderson has been assigned to Dube’s case but will be unavailable Wednesday. Justice Ann Murray will handle Dube’s arraignment and Anderson will deal with all other matters in the case.

Dube was charged on May 21 in connection with the death of Cable on Mother’s Day, the day she disappeared. Her body was found late May 20 in a wooded area of Old Town after Dube’s girlfriend and brother told police where Dube said he had left the girl’s body.
