PORTLAND — The jury at the murder trial for William Hanaman has not reached a verdict, and they are listening to a read-back of the defendant’s entire testimony from last Friday.

Jurors requested the read-back this morning at Cumberland County Superior Court.

Hanaman, 52, is charged with killing his girlfriend, Marion Shea, on Nov. 10, 2009.

Prosecutors say Hanaman repeatedly stabbed Shea, a 47-year-old mother of five, during a fight in Hanaman’s apartment on Ocean Avenue.

He has claimed during the trial that Shea came at him with the knife and he stabbed her in self-defense.

The trial opened a week ago. Hanaman testified Friday in his own defense. If he is convicted, he will face a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.

They began deliberating Monday around 2 p.m., following five days of testimony.
