AUBURN, Maine (AP) - A Maine man convicted of killing a Lewiston resident who told police about his involvement in a burglary has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Twenty-two-year-old William True of Lewiston was convicted in December of murder in the killing of Romeo Parent. He also was convicted of hindering apprehension or prosecution.

The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1WxDrgA ) reported that the defense withdrew its motion aimed at dismissing the conviction after reaching a plea deal.

Assistant Attorney General Deborah Cashman said Tuesday that True was appropriately convicted but the state felt that another man, Michael McNaughton, played a bigger role in Romeo’s death.

Prosecutors say True and McNaughton, who’s awaiting sentencing, lured Parent to his death on a dead-end dirt road in Greene on the pretense of burglarizing a camp for drugs.
