Man accused in Maine homicides wanted for Rochester hit-and-run
WHAM Rochester, N.Y. - A Rochester man charged with a double murder on Christmas in Maine is wanted in Rochester for a hit-and-run that seriously injured a man.
David Marble, Jr. had already been ticketed in connection with the crash this summer.
He is facing a number of charges, including assault in the 2nd degree, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident with serious personal injury, aggravated unauthorized operation of a motor vehicle in the 3rd degree and other traffic related citations.
Wednesday, police said they had been looking for Marble since October 30.
On July 18, Currie Clanton, 50, was hit while walking across upper falls boulevard. He suffered a broken leg, pelvis and brain damage. A police report says the driver of that car was Marble, and that he had been ticketed for violations, but was never charged for leaving the scene.
Clanton is still in the hospital.
Rochester police say they're now working with the district attorney's office and law enforcement in Maine regarding Marble's arrest.
Marble is facing charges in Maine for allegedly killing a couple in their SUV on a dirt road not far from their home. Police are calling the crime drug-related.
A woman, who lived across the street from Marble before he moved to Maine said she suspected drug activity in that home.
"You could tell by the trafficking and how much people would go back there into the garage," said Sandra Smith.
Marble appeared in Augusta County Court on Wednesday. He was formally charged with two counts of murder, but did not enter a plea.
Three days after the deadly shootings, Marble allegedly posted a status on his Facebook page that read: "Forgive me God for I have sin. Spiritus Sancti." Another post read: "This was a good Christmas after all. Everybody got a present this year and I was not locked up."
This sparked a flood of comments of outrage from the friends and family of the victims Marble is accused of murdering.
One of Marble's former neighbor's is stunned by the news.
"That's really shocking to hear that - and I'm glad that they caught him, because I wouldn't want him to hurt anybody else," Smith said.
According to New York State records, Marble fulfilled his parole requirement in 2014, after serving time for a robbery conviction.
