SKOWHEGAN – A Norridgewock man was indicted Friday in connection with the shooting death of an Anson man nearly two years ago, according to state police.

A Somerset County Grand Jury indicted Robert Nelson, 40, on a murder charge in connection with the Oct. 31, 2009, death of Everett Cameron, who was shot to death while sitting in his pickup truck a short distance from his house.

State police detectives arrested Nelson on Friday at Somerset County Jail in Madison. He already was being held on an unrelated charge and probably will appear next week in Somerset County Superior Court in Skowhegan on the murder charge.

Detectives who have investigated the death over the past two years say the two men knew each other.

Cameron, who was 60 when he died, lived on Town Farm Road. Nelson was then a resident of North Anson.

Police did not explain how their investigation led to Nelson or provide other details about him.

The death was determined quickly in 2009 to be a homicide, but it remained unsolved for more than a year after the crime occurred.

Lt. Gary Wright, commanding officer of the Maine State Police Criminal Investigation Division’s Unit II, said last October that the lead detective on the case was “working around the clock every day.”

Cameron’s fiancee, Virginia Hayden, 67, who found his body, and his daughter-in-law, Debbie Terpstra of New Vineyard, said in 2010 they thought Cameron’s death was connected to the sale of prescription medication. Cameron had suffered from lymphoma for several years before he was killed and still had some painkillers.

“It’s terrible to think someone would take a life over a few pills,” Terpstra said then.

They said Cameron enjoyed hunting, fishing and NASCAR racing; and that he built ice fishing traps. He had three children and three grandchildren.

A lifelong resident of Anson, he had been employed as a paving crew foreman for Bruce A. Manzer Inc.
