AUBURN, Maine — A Maine man convicted last year of killing a Lewiston resident who prosecutors say told police about his involvement in a burglary case is challenging his conviction.
The Sun Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1S7Yrs5 ) 21-year-old William True, of Lewiston, is seeking to have his conviction thrown out or be granted a new trial.
True's attorney, James Howaniec, said in a June motion that prosecutors presented three witnesses during the trial that committed perjury.
Howaniec says prosecutors presented evidence suggesting that True's footprint had been found at the site of Parent's murder, despite a trial judge's decision to remove the image from evidence the jury could consider.
True was convicted in Androscoggin County Superior Court in December of killing 20-year-old Romeo Parent, of Lewiston. He has not been sentenced.
