Bangor police say woman's death a homicide

The Associated Press

BANGOR — Bangor police say the death of a 49-year-old Bangor woman has been ruled a homicide and a man who lived at the same address has been charged with killing her in what is being described as a case of domestic violence.

Bangor police said Monday that 49-year-old Sherry Clifford was found dead Friday evening in a Jefferson Street apartment.

An autopsy conducted on Saturday determined Clifford was the victim of a homicide, although police did not release the cause of death.

On Monday 50-year-old David Coon, who lived at the same Bangor address, was arrested and charged with murder.

Coon is being held at the Penobscot County jail.
