PORTLAND — A Windham man has been indicted on a charge of manslaughter, not murder, for the shooting death of another man who had snuck onto his property to steal marijuana.

Joseph Green, 44, told detectives he shot at silhouettes among the pot plants growing on his property on Aug. 31. He said he later discovered the body of David Harmon, 40, on his land and he dragged it some distance away from his home at 38 Roosevelt Trail.

Investigators found Harmon’s body and tracked the evidence to Green. They initially charged Green with murder, and prosecutors presented the case this week to a grand jury at Cumberland County Superior Court.

But the grand jury today returned an indictment on the lesser charge of manslaughter. They also indicted Green on felony counts of reckless conduct with a weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and aggravated cultivation of marijuana.
