Vassalboro Man Charged With Murder

Kennebec County Jail

State Police are saying that last week’s death in Vassalboro was a homicide and have filed murder charges against the young man who called police about the discovery of the body.  According to Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland, Courtney Shea, 30, who lives with his mother at their home on Route 201 in Vassalboro has been charged with murder.

McCausland said Shea had notified the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office early Friday morning  there was a body next door at an abandoned mobile home.  Shea was arrested Friday by State Police on a probation violation and has been held at the Kennebec Jail.  Detectives notified him of the murder charge on Nov. 25.

McCausland said Shea is being  charged in connection with the death of 69 year old Thomas Namer of Waterville.  An autopsy by the State Medical Examiner’s Office determined Namer died from stab wounds. Shea will likely make his first court appearance on the murder charge either Tuesday or Wednesday at Kennebec  Superior Court in Augusta. The two men had known each other for some time, McCausland said.
