A man accused of murdering his girlfriend in Augusta was arraigned today. 39 year old Justin Pillsbury is charged with killing Jillian Jones in November. Authorities say Pillsbury was jealous because Jones had talked with another man on the telephone. He reportedly told a roommate that he "blacked out" and stabbed Jones to death. He then tried to kill himself by stabbing himself in the neck. In court today, Pillsbury pleaded not guilty to a charge of intentional and knowing murder. He's being held without bail.
Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.
Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.
Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
