DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine (AP) - One of two cousins originally charged with attempted murder in connection with a non-fatal shooting in Dover-Foxcroft last year has reached a deal with prosecutors under which the charge was dropped.

Wilbur Corson Jr. instead pleaded no contest Thursday to aggravated assault.

The 22-year-old Corson and his cousin, Kyle Corson, were accused of shooting a man in the stomach last April.

Police say the victim was beaten and shot during a dispute with other men with whom he had a history of conflict.

The Corsons maintained self-defense, saying the victim was smashing windows in their vehicles and refusing to leave their property.

Wilbur Corson is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.

Kyle Corson’s case is still pending.
