BANGOR (AP) — Police have identified a 21-year-old homicide victim as her alleged killer made his initial court appearance in Bangor.

Police said Tuesday that an autopsy determined that Brooke Locke of Bangor died from strangulation. Zackery Mailloux of Bangor, meanwhile, appeared in the Penobscot Judicial Center, where he was ordered held without bail.

Bangor police said they found Locke’s body Monday while responding to a complaint of a domestic disturbance.

Both Mailloux and Locke were Husson University students. Husson spokesman Eric Gordon says Locke was a third-year occupational therapy student. He said Mailloux enrolled through continuing education.
