Bunker, Miller Found Not Guilty in Matinicus Shooting Incident

As predicted three days ago.

Here's the story...........

Rockland — A Knox County jury has found Edwin Vance Bunker and his daughter Janan Miller not guilty on all counts in the case of a shooting incident last summer on the island of Matinicus.

The jury deliberated for 11 hours over March 11 and 12 before reaching the verdict at 5 p.m. in the trial of the 68-year-old Matinicus lobsterman and his 45-year-old daughter.

Bunker and Miller had no comment as they left the courthouse. They gave hugs to their family and friends who were in the courtroom after the jurors left the room.

Justice Jeffrey Hjelm cautioned spectators in the courtroom, before the jurors were brought in to announce their verdict, not to show any outward reaction about the verdict. He said the jurors worked very, very hard and he later thanked them for their service to the community. He asked anyone who could not withhold their reactions to wait outside in the hallway.
