Maine State Police announced that Philip Clark, 55, has been arrested and charged with murder amid a homicide investigation in Hampden.

Hampden police officers responded to 557 Kennebec Road on Thursday night for a welfare check, which launched the homicide investigation, according to state police.

The name of the murdered woman has not been released. Her body has been taken to the state's medical examiner's office in Augusta for an autopsy, which police said is expected to be completed by Saturday.
