A Buckfield man, formerly of Turner, has been indicted, arrested and charged with murder in the 2020 death of his infant daughter.
Today, Sept. 8, the Grand Jury sitting at Androscoggin County returned an indictment charging the Trevor Averill, 27, of Buckfield, with Depraved Indifference Murder and Manslaughter. Averill was arrested at his home in Buckfield this afternoon.
July 2020, the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office responded to 592 North Parish Road in Turner for the report of a two-month infant in medical distress. Deputies performed CPR and assisted rescue personnel with the child, who was identified as Harper Averill.
The child was brought by ambulance to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment. The infant ultimately died as a result of her injuries. The Office of Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy following the death.
