OSSIPEE, N.H. — Kyle Acker, the father of Krista Dittmeyer’s child, is scheduled to be arraigned on drug charges this week in Carroll County Superior Court.

But it’s not expected that Acker, 26, will be present at the proceeding Wednesday because he is serving a two-year sentence for drug trafficking in Maine. It’s expected that a warrant will be issued for his arrest and a detainer will be lodged to let authorities in Maine know he is wanted in New Hampshire.

Acker is accused of selling cocaine to a confidential informant in Conway on Oct. 5 and Nov. 3 of last year. A grand jury indicted him last month on two counts of selling less than a half-ounce of cocaine.

Assistant County Attorney Stephen Murray said after the warrant is issued and the detainer lodged, Acker could request extradition to New Hampshire or the prosecutor could request extradition.

Acker was arrested in Maine in June after police found 15 grams of cocaine, 2 ounces of  marijuana and a 9 mm handgun in the apartment he shared with Dittmeyer in South Portland, Maine.

Dittemeyer, who was 20 and living in Portland before going missing, was found dead in a pond at Cranmore Mountain Resort in Conway in April.

A New Hampshire man, 28-year-old Anthony Papile, has been accused of killing her during a plot to steal money and drugs from her and has been charged with second-degree murder. Two others – 28-year-old Michael Petelis and 23-year-old Trevor Ferguson – have been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.
