BELFAST, Maine (AP) - A Knox man is going on trial on a manslaughter charge in the fatal shooting of his friend.
Jury selection in the trial of Luke Bryant, 20, begins Monday in Waldo County Superior Court in Belfast. Testimony is expected to get under way Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Bryant killed Tyler Seaney, 19, of Brewer, at Bryant's apartment in February 2011. Bryant told police he was trying to unjam his 12-gauge shotgun when he accidentally pulled the trigger as Seaney stepped out of the bathroom.
Manslaughter carries a maximum 30-year sentence in Maine.
