Maine Man Accused of Repeatedly Stabbing Winslow Man Says He’s Not Guilty
The suspect arrested and charged with a gruesome stabbing that occurred on January 18th in Winslow, Maine has entered a plea of 'not guilty'.
WGME 13 is reporting that 21-year-old, Justin Boucher, who was in court last week in Augusta has pleaded not guilty. Police say they believe Boucher is responsible for the stabbing which left a 65-year-old Maine man with multiple wounds on Winslow's LaSalle Street back in January.
The stab victim was located by police after they were able to follow his trail of blood for about a block or so. They then found the victim at an apartment over on Winslow's Monument Street.
Police were then able to ID the suspect, Justin Boucher, who was in an apartment on Clinton Avenue, but he jumped out a back window. Police were able to take him into custody shortly after.
Police are also saying that they are investigating the stabbing victim as well. Police believe the 65-year-old may have assaulted someone 'close to Boucher', though no confirmation has been given on the alleged crime.
Boucher is expected to be back in court on June 1st, according to WGME.
