BANGOR — On Tuesday, a New York man convicted of the 2017 murder of a New Gloucester woman is scheduled to learn how long he’ll spend in prison.
Last October a Penobscot County jury found 40-year-old Carine Reeves guilty of murder in connection with the shooting death of 55-year-old Sally Shaw.
Shaw’s body was found on the side of Route 193 with a bullet wound to the head.
During the trial’s closing arguments, prosecutors said Reeves and Shaw were involved in the drug trade.
According to prosecutors, Shaw teased Reeves about his child’s mother. A witness who was a passenger in the car with Reeves and Shaw testified Reeves pulled the car to the side of the road and shot her in the head.
Under Maine law, Reeves could be sent to prison for the rest of his life.
