AUBURN, Maine (AP) - The lawyer for a 21-year-old Lewiston man charged in the 2013 stabbing and strangulation death of another 21-year-old says he’s talking with prosecutors about a possible plea agreement.

James Hawaniec, lawyer for William True of Lewiston, tells the Sun Journal of Lewiston the two sides have been talking in advance of a Nov. 10 change-of-plea hearing.

If no agreement is reached, True is scheduled for trial in December in Androscoggin County Superior Court in the death of 21-year-old Romeo Parent.

A state witness has said that True was trying to get back at Parent for talking to police about a burglary in which the two were involved.

Michael McNaughton, 27, of Lewiston was convicted of Parent’s murder in July. Authorities charge True was part of a conspiracy to kill Parent.
