    Maine State Police Col. Robert Williams announced Tuesday the 68-day search for 38-year-old Robert Burton will cost about $500,000.

    Authorities say the manhunt for a Maine man accused of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend will cost state police hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Maine State Police Col. Robert Williams announced Tuesday the 68-day search for 38-year-old Robert Burton will cost about $500,000.

    The Portland Press Herald reports state police spokesman Stephen McCausland confirmed that the cost makes it the most expensive in state history.

    Investigators say they believe Burton climbed into the bedroom window of Stephanie Ginn Gebo and shot her after she broke up with him.

    Her body was found on June 5 by her daughter who, along with a younger brother, had been asleep upstairs.

    Burton surrendered at Piscataquis County Jail in Dover-Foxcroft on Aug. 11.
