BETHEL (NEWS CENTER) -- Wednesday, Maine State Police arrested 23-year-old Agostino Samson of Bethel and Windham. He has been charged with murder in connection with the death of 25-year-old Scott Libby of Raymond.
The medical examiners office determined the cause of death to be multiple traumatic injuries of the neck and head. They determined the manner of death was homicide.
Samson is expected to be in Oxford County Superior Court on Thursday.
Police say Scott Libby's car was on these rail road tracks with the lights turned off when a St. Lawrence and Atlantic Freight train hit it from behind. The accident took place shortly before three o'clock in the morning last Friday.
The manager of a hostel in West Bethel told NEWS CENTER that a guest admitted he punched the 25 year old man shortly before his car was hit by the train.
Wyling Cambrium, who would not go on camera, says the guest had worked for Libby who was a landscaper, over the summer. The manager says Libby had visited him at the hostel to settle a debt. He says state police searched the hostel and questioned the guest.
