AUGUSTA, Maine — An Augusta man charged with fatally stabbing his live-in girlfriend is scheduled to go on trial next year.
The Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1IfBDkx ) reports that a judge Wednesday scheduled 40-year-old Justin Pillsbury's trial for March.
Pillsbury is charged with murder in connection with the death of Jillian Jones at their Augusta apartment in 2013. Authorities say he was angry because she talked to another man on the phone. He pleaded not guilty last year and is being held in jail.
In September 2014, he sought to have statements he made to police kept out of trial, claiming he was too sedated to think straight. That motion was denied by Murphy, who said that Pillsbury had "sufficient control of his faculties."
