Matthew Davis shows absolutely no emotion as Justice E. Allen Hunter reads off his charges. Davis is charged with two counts of murder in connection with the deaths of a man and woman from Oakfield, whose bodies were discovered earlier this week. The first has been positively identified as 51-year-old Michael Kitchen.
Kitchen is said to have died from multiple gunshot wounds. The second is presumed to be 49-year-old Heidi Pratt.An autopsy on Pratt was scheduled for Wednesday and a positive ID is pending the medical examiner’s results. At this point, a motive is not clear, but an affidavit released revealed more about what exactly may have happened on Monday morning. The affidavit alleges that Davis left his residence Sunday night in a flatbed truck and drove it into a building at Katahdin Forest Products in Oakfield. He then abandoned the vehicle, took a white Ford Ranger that belonged to the company and went to 331 Oakfield Smyrna road – the home of Kitchen and Pratt. Neighbors told police they woke up before five in the morning to the sound of gunshots.
