    Maine state police have issued an arrest warrant for an "armed and dangerous" man suspected of killing his former girlfriend in the town of Parkman.

    Police have been seeking Robert Burton for questioning in the death of 37-year-old Stephanie Gebo. On Monday, police announced that he'd been charged with murder, and said he was considered armed and dangerous.

    Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety said Monday that Burton's pickup truck and another one he's believed to have stolen were found on Monday. Both vehicles were found in Piscataquis County.

    Police said Burton lived with Gebo up until the weekend before police announced the discovery of her body on Friday. Gebo was discovered inside her home by her two children.

    State Police are advising residents to lock their homes and vehicles, as Burton is considered to be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call 207-973-3700.
