A Bar Harbor man has been formally charged with the murder and rape of a 19-year-old girl.

21-year-old Jalique Keene is accused of killing Mikaela Conley in June.

According to court documents, Keene was seen on a security camera dragging the young woman's body across a school playground to a wooded area where her body was found.

Police say video footage from the school prior to that shows the two together, with Keene picking up Conley, putting her over his shoulder and walking off with her as she kicked her feet.

Authorities say Conley died from blunt force trauma and strangulation.

Keene and Conley both attended MDI High School at the same time.
