Man charged in 1976 death returned to Maine


A homeless man from Seattle is back in Maine to face a murder charge for the 1976 stabbing death of a 70-year-old woman. Gary Raub, 64, arrived Friday at Kennebec County Jail after being arrested in Seattle in October for allegedly killing Blanche Kimball in her Augusta home. Raub had rented a room from Kimball, but denied involvement in her death at the time. Detectives last year developed a DNA profile from blood found in Kimball’s kitchen, and obtained Raub’s DNA in July by asking him to participate in a chewing gum survey in Seattle.
