(CBS/AP) BANGOR, Maine - Kyle Dube, a 20-year-old man suspected of killing 15-year-old Nichole Cable in Maine, has been indicted on charges of murder and kidnapping.

A Penobscot County grand jury Wednesday formally charged Dube in the death of Nichole.

Earlier in the day, attorneys for Dube and for two news organizations clashed in a Bangor courtroom over the media's motion to unseal an affidavit explaining why the Orono resident was charged in the girl's death.

A judge impounded the affidavit last week after Dube's lawyer cited his right to a fair trial and other concerns.

The Associated Press and the Portland Press Herald contend probable cause affidavits may be sealed only under rare circumstances that don't apply in this case.

Nichole, who lived in Glenburn, was found this month in a wooded area in nearby Old Town.

Tyler-Ann Harris, a 16-year-old girl who described herself as Nichole's best friend, had previously said that the slain 15-year-old knew Dube.

Nichole and Dube had been friends for a couple of months and had made plans to see each other the weekend that she disappeared, according to Harris.
