A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a Maine man last month.

The teenager was taken into custody in Lewiston and transported to the Waldo County Jail. He will make his first court appearance on Thursday or Friday in a Belfast courtroom. Because of his age, police are not releasing the boy's name until he appears in court.

Detectives with the Maine State Police have been investigating the death of Steven Hodgdon, 49, since March 8, after Waldo County sheriff's deputies were called to his home on Rutland Road in Troy around 2:30 a.m. and found him unresponsive.

The state medical examiner's office ruled the death a homicide, saying that Hodgdon died of a stab wound to the chest.
