    A 17-year-old has been charged with the murder of two people found dead in a Maine home Monday morning.

    Maine State Police are investigating the "highly suspicious" deaths of Alice and Antonio Belcer.

    The bodies were discovered at a home on Pine Knoll Road in Winthrop around 2 a.m.

    "There is no reason to believe the public is in danger," said Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

    Neighbors tell necn a friendly family lives at the home.

    "He was in the service," said Kenneth Legasse. "I see him ride his motorcycle, and she jogs up the road."

    As neighbors wait to hear more information from police, they are recalling chilling moments Monday morning.

    Normand Dubreuil lives on Pine Knoll Road and was awakened by the sound of a girl knocking on his door.

    "She was very, very panicked, she said 'Let me in, I don't want to die tonight," said Dubreuil.

    He said it was around 2 a.m. when the girl knocked, then ran up the street waving a flashlight.

    "It looked like she was walking backwards, looking to see if anyone was coming after her," he said.

    He is still shaken up, remembering what she said.

    "She said, 'My brother has a gun, and he's going to kill my other brother,’" Dubreuil recalled.

    He called police — and later learned about the discovery of the two bodies in the house just a few doors down.

    "It's one of those unsettling moments," he said.
