Helicopter crash

Rescuers were called to a helicopter crash this afternoon in the town of Whitefield.

It happened off the East River Road and we're told rescuers had to hike to the scene on foot.

There aren't many details available at this hour, but we know the chopper is owned by Maine Helicopter Incorporated and the pilot survived.

He crawled from the wreckage with a cut on his head.

We have a crew on the scene and will have much more tonight at ten on FOX 22.



Jeskey guilty of murder

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.

Fatal crash

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.
