Police say a search of Kyle Dube's Orono home last month revealed a gun stolen from a home in Kenduskeag and items that matched descriptions from another break-in.

WABI-TV says Dube now faces charges of burglary and theft by unauthorized taking.

He has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Nichole Cable of Glenburn.

He's accused of creating a fake Facebook profile and using it to set up a meeting with Nichole before killing her and hiding her body on May 12.

A state police affidavit filed in court by Detective Thomas D. Pickering alleges thatDube put on a facemask and intended to kidnap Cable, bind her with duct tape and hide her, then find her later and be hailed as a hero.

Dube told others that he bound Nichole and put her in the back of his father's pickup truck and that he later discovered she was dead, authorities said.

An autopsy determined she died from asphyxiation.

Dozens of law enforcement officers, using aircraft and dogs, and hundreds of volunteers spent days searching for Cable, whose body was found the night of May 20. About 300 people attended her funeral.
