George Jaime Sr. of Presque Isle said during a phone call from jail that was recorded that he’d done bad things in his life “but I didn’t do it this time.” The 76-year-old is charged in the death of Starlett “Star” Vining, who went missing in 1998 and whose body hasn’t been found. Jaime wasn’t arrested until last year.

WAGM-TV reported that Jaime’s ex-wife told jurors Thursday that Jaime warned his three sons, including one who previously testified to have helped clean up after the killing, “to keep their mouths shut.”
