Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said 50-year-old Barry Brown of Raymond, N.H., had applied to the New Hampshire parole department to move to Maine, then moved without proper authorization.

CHESTERVILLE, Maine (AP) _ Authorities in Maine have arrested a convicted murderer on parole for life in New Hampshire, saying he moved to Maine without proper authorization.

Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said 50-year-old Barry Brown of Raymond, N.H., had applied to the New Hampshire parole department to move to Maine. But transferring parole between the two states had not been done when Brown moved to Maine.

The Sun Journal reports Brown is being held without bail until he goes before a judge.

Brown served at least the minimum term of a 20-to-99 year sentence on a second-degree murder conviction in 1984.

He has been back three times for parole violations since he was released.
