JACKSONVILLE, N.B. — The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have charged an 18-year-old man from Jacksonville, New Brunswick, with first degree murder in the death of a 17-year-old girl, also from Jacksonville, which is located just across the Maine border at Houlton. 

The RCMP arrested Amon Kelleter on Sept. 11 at a home in Jacksonville. Police had responded to the home at about 4:20 p.m. after receiving a 911 call about an unresponsive person at the residence, according to a press release the RCMP issued Wednesday.

Kelleter made his first appearance in Woodstock Provincial Court early Wednesday afternoon, and has been remanded in custody until his next scheduled court appearance on Oct. 15.

The name of the victim is not being released due to a court ordered publication ban. No other information was released.

The New Brunswick RCMP Major Crime Unit continues to investigate.
