Maine man convicted of killing sheriff's deputy.
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A man accused of placing a gun to the neck of a sheriff's deputy and pulling the trigger was convicted of murder Tuesday after a trial that focused on his state of mind. Both sides agree that defendant John Williams fired the shot that killed Cpl. Eugene Cole last year in Norridgewock. The prosecution, though, argued he knew exactly what he was doing, while the defense claimed he was sleep-deprived and strung out on cocaine and heroin. The jury delivered the guilty verdict Tuesday afternoon. Cole, 61, was the first law enforcement officer to be killed in the line of duty in nearly 30 years in Maine.
