SKOWHEGAN — A Maine judge will deliver his verdict Tuesday for a Skowhegan man charged with murder in a drug-related fatal shooting more than three years ago.
Justice John Nivison is scheduled to deliver his verdict Tuesday morning in Somerset County Superior Court in Skowhegan two weeks after presiding over 41-year-old Robert Nelson’s trial.
Nelson was charged with killing 60-year-old Everett Cameron in his pickup truck on Oct. 31, 2009.
Nelson waived his right to a jury trial. He testified that he met Cameron that day but didn’t shoot him. He said he met Cameron to tell him he couldn’t repay money he owed him for prescription drugs that Cameron had sold him.
Prosecutors said Nelson was buying painkillers that Cameron was taking for treatment of lymphoma.
