3 arrested in connection with murder of 18 year old

Aaron Wilkinson was killed June 21; Zachary Pinette, Michael Tatum and Tristan Wolusky face charges

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Authorities have charged three men with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of an 18-year-old New Hampshire man whose body was found in Maine.
Attorney General Joseph Foster said Aaron Wilkinson was killed Saturday on his property in Madbury. His body was found about 20 miles away in Lebanon, Maine.
The three arrested and charged with murder are 18-year-old Zachary Pinette of Springvale, Maine; 21-year-old Michael Tatum of Barrington, New Hampshire; and 18-year-old Tristan Wolusky of Rochester, New Hampshire.
The three were arraigned at 1 p.m. Thursday in Dover District Court. Pinette appeared in person, while Tatum and Wolusky appeared over video from jail.

Prosecutors say that this murder was not random. A witness confirmed to NECN that Wilkinson was friends with the suspects.

The suspects will remain behind bars without bail. They will appear in court again on July 14.

A memorial walk is scheduled for Wilkinson on Friday at 5:30 p.m. from Dover High School to a local skate park.
