The 80-year-old Florida man accused of killing Presque Isle resident Leo Corriveau is scheduled to appear in Caribou Superior Court Monday, Aug. 8, according to the state attorney general’s office.

Robert Craig, a resident of Clearwater, Florida, will make his first court appearance in Maine at 11:30 a.m. Monday to face a charge of murder, Timothy Feeley, a spokesperson for the attorney general, said Friday.

Craig was arrested Thursday, July 28, near his home in the Tampa, Florida, area and has been held since in Pinellas County Jail on a fugitive from justice charge. Craig waived extradition during a hearing in that state on Tuesday and was expected to be transported to Maine sometime this week.

As of Friday morning, however, Craig was still in Florida, according to an official at the Pinellas County Jail. Calls to the Maine State Police for information about how or when he would be transported to Maine were not returned Friday.

According to an affidavit filed in Presque Isle District Court, Craig allegedly strangled 86-year-old Corriveau at Corriveau’s Presque Isle residence on July 21 and then fled with Corriveau’s car to Hermon, where he took a bus back to Florida.

Corriveau was found dead facedown in his backyard by relatives on Saturday, July 23, from what an autopsy later revealed to be strangulation. Police investigators have found physical evidence in his home and car, according to the affidavit.

Craig was a neighbor of Corriveau’s at a mobile home community in Clearwater, Florida, where Corriveau spent his winters. The two came to Maine together to stay at Corriveau’s Presque Isle home on July 12, according to police.
