State police arrested two teenagers Friday and charged them with the murder of a Houlton man.

Arrested were Reginald Dobbins, 18, and a 16-year-old whose name was not released because of his age. Both are from Houlton, said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

They are accused of killing Keith Suitter, 61, whose body was discovered Sunday night in his mobile home on Hillview Avenue in Houlton.

McCausland said detectives searched Suitter’s home, his pickup truck – which was found in a snowbank near his house – and two other houses in Houlton this week.

He said authorities won’t release any other information on the case, including the cause of death, this weekend. More information, he said, might be in paperwork that will be filed in court on Monday, when the two teenagers will make their first court appearance in the case.

The two have been taken to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton.
