May 3, 2018

The girlfriend of a Maine man charged with killing a sheriff's deputy is facing drug charges.

The Morning Sentinel reports that a grand jury indicted Kristina Pomerleau on charges of possession of cocaine base and unlawful furnishing of cocaine.

Court documents indicate her boyfriend, John Williams, smoked from a "crack pipe" after killing Cpl. Eugene Cole on April 25 in Norridgewock.

A police report indicates the 61-year-old Cole was involved in the arrest of Pomerleau on April 21, when she was cited for driving without a valid license.

Pomerleau has declined to comment and records at the Somerset County Jail do not indicate whether she has a lawyer.

Williams is being held on a murder charge at the Maine State Prison. His attorney said he is not ready to discuss specifics.
