These are some of the stories central Maine is talking about today.

A jury has convicted a Waterville man of stabbing to death a 92-year-old man and stealing jewelry from his home. A jury convicted 46-year-old Roland Cummings of Waterville of killing Aurele Fecteau in May 2014. A forensic analyst testified that DNA from the turned-out pockets of Fecteau's pants linked Cummings to the crime. The state's chief medical examiner testified that Fecteau had been stabbed 16 times. The prosecutor argued that Cummings knew Fecteau had money, which he stole and used to support his drug habit. No sentencing date has been set. (AP)

The Kennebec County district attorney says former Waterville Senior High School Principal Don Reiter is charged with a misdemeanor for asking a student for sex in August. District Attorney Maeghan Maloney says Reiter won't be charged with attempted gross sexual assault because the alleged victim was 18 years old. The misdemeanor he was charged with on Thursday is punishable by up to six months in jail. The Waterville Board of Education fired Reiter on Monday. He had been on administrative leave since Aug. 27 while school officials investigated the allegation. Reiter's attorney says the facts of the case are disputed. He also says it's a stretch for the district attorney to use an anti-corruption statute in the case. Reiter is charged with official oppression. (AP)

FBI Director James Comey says there's no credible threat to the United States following the Paris terror attacks.
