A Bangor woman has been found guilty of murder. Roxanne Jeskey received her verdict today in a case that was decided by a judge. The 50 year old is now convicted of killing her husband Richard during a jealous rage nearly three years ago. She had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but the judge rejected the claim. Authorities say Richard Jeskey was found beaten and strangled in the bathroom of his Ohio street apartment.
The northern Maine town of Chapman was the scene of a deadly crash. It happened around 6:45 Thursday evening on the Chapman road. State police say 42 year old Johnathan Browning was driving a pickup truck when it drifted off the side of the road causing it to skid out of control. It then crossed back over the roadway and struck a telephone pole before rolling over. Browning was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially thrown from the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe excessive speed and the fact Browning wasn't wearing a seatbelt were factors in the deadly crash.
