BANGOR — Maine’s highest court on Thursday rejected an appeal by a Boston native who was convicted and sentenced to 42 years in prison for a fatal shooting in Bangor.

F Daly was convicted of murder in the killing of 51-year-old Israel Lewis, whose body was found in a boarding home in January 2018.

In his appeal, Daly contended that the trial judge should have allowed evidence of an alternative suspect and granted a request for a new trial. The Supreme Judicial Court upheld the judgment, sentence and denial of a motion for a new trial.

Daly confessed to his former girlfriend, and a gun hidden in his home matched bullet casings left at the scene, prosecutors said.
