(Waterville-AP) -- More details are released in the case against Edward J- Hackett. He's the Utah parolee accused of kidnapping and murdering 21-year-old Dawn Rossignol in Maine last month.

A police affidavit shows a microscopic D-N-A sample confirmed that Hackett was in the Colby College student's car.

Prosecutors originally sought to have the affidavit impounded but changed their minds after the Portland Press Herald reported that Hackett confessed to a reporter.

The 47-year-old moved to Maine six months ago to live with his parents in Vassalboro following his release from prison after serving eleven years for an abduction in Utah.

Hackett is being held without bail on charges of kidnapping and murder with a court appearance scheduled for November 18th.
