Rescue at sea

We learned today about a scary experience for members of a lobster boat that sank last week.

The crew of the fishing boat, "Kendra and Maysie" were fishing near Vinalhaven island in thick fog when they struck a ledge and sank early Tuesday morning.

Crewmembers, Richard Bickford of Vinalhaven and William Deane jr. of Friendship both scrambled into an inflatable life raft.

That's where they remained for about nine hours until people aboard a passing sailboat heard their cries for help.

They pulled the two wet and cold men on board and gave them warm clothing and put one in a sleeping bag.

Members of the Maine Marine Patrol also responded and brought them to shore where they were checked out by medical personel and later released.

The U.S. Coast Guard continues to investigate the incident.

Defense rests in Attempted murder trial

The defense has rested in the trial of a man accused of trying to murder his wife by pushing her from a cliff.

71 year old Charles Black is on trial in Rockland where the case is expected to be considered by a jury Monday afternoon.

Prosecutors says Black had been having an affair and wanted the millions of dollars his wife was inheriting following the death of her father.

They say black struck his wife in the head in april of 2011 while they were atop Maiden Cliff in Camden.

He's then accused of pushing his wife who was badly injured after falling.

Black was also hurt when he tumbled.

He's on trial for attempted murder and other charges.

Both sides were expected to present closing arguments Monday afternoon before sending the case to the jury.
