BANGOR — A 41-year-old transient accused of fatally stabbing another man during a fight in May has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter.

Jason Alan Trickett was ordered held on $50,000 bail at his arraignment Monday at the Penobscot Judicial Center. He has been held, unable to make bail, since his arrest in June.

Trickett is accused of stabbing 38-year-old Andy Smith in the street outside a friend’s apartment. Smith died later at the hospital.

He told investigators that they had been drinking and using drugs.

A witness to the fight told the Bangor Daily News that Smith was stabbed following an altercation in a street with a woman. The witness said the woman called for her friends, who went after Smith.

If convicted, Trickett faces up to 30 years in prison.
