WMTW News 8 Wednesday evening headlines


GOOD EVENING AND
WELCOME BACK TO
NEWS-8 NOW, I’M
TRACY SABOL.
AND, I’M STEVE
MINICH.
PROSEUCTORS
HAVE DROPPED
MANSLAUGHTER
CHARGES AGAINST
THE GIRL ACCUSED OF
KILLING AN INFANT
TWO YEARS AGO.
THE DEFENDANT
WAS TEN AT THE TIME
OF THE INCIDENT.
SHE IS THE
YOUNGEST PERSON
TO EVER FACE A
MANSLAUGHTER
CHARGE IN THE
STATE OF MAINE.
TODAY, SHE
PLEADED GUILTY TO
LESSER,
MISDEMEANOR
CHARGES INSTEAD.
PROSECUTORS SAY
THE GIRL KILLED
THREE-MONTH-OLD
BROOKLYN FOSS-
GREENAWAY IN JULY
OF 2012.
BROOKLYN’S
MOTHER WAS IN
COURT TODAY.
SHE FEELS AS
THOUGH JUSTICE
WASN’T SERVED
TODAY.

Ñ
“She’s going to look
at it as, ‘I got away
with murder.'”
“Because the juvenile
code is really focused
on rehabilitation, given
the age of this child, it
made no sense to think
in terms of adult
punishment, so the
goal here was really to
try to get her in a
situation where she
will receive the
treatment she needs
for an extended period
of time.”
PROSECUTORS
NEVER CHARGED
ANYONE ELSE WITH A
CRIME RELATED TO
BROOKLYN’S DEATH.
THE DEFENDANT
WILL RECEIVE
TREATMENT AND
COUNSELLING INTO
ADULTHOOD.

MAINE’S FARM
BUREAU IS
SQUEEZING SOME
MONEY OUT OF AN
EMERGENCY FUND TO
HELP THE FARMERS
WHO SUPPLY THE
MILK TO “MAINE’S
OWN ORGANIC MILK”
COMPANY.
AS WE TOLD YOU
LAST WEEK, THE
COMPANY’S “C-E-O”
DECIDED TO SHUT
DOWN PRODUCTION
BECAUSE OF AGING
EQUIPMENT.
WHILE STONYFIELD
FARM IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE IS
BUYING MILK FROM
“MOO’S” 12
SUPPLIERS, THAT
AGREEMENT ONLY
LASTS A FEW
MONTHS.
“MOO MILK” IS
MAINE’S ONLY LARGE-
SCALE ORGANIC MILK
PRODUCER.

THE FORMER
OWNERS OF A MAINE
EGG FARM ARE NOW
CHARGED IN
CONNECTION WITH A
2010 SALMONELLA
OUTBREAK THAT
MADE THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE SICK.
“JACK” DECOSTER
AND HIS SON, PETER
ARE CHARGED WITH
“INTRODUCING
ADULTERATED FOOD
INTO INTERSTATE
COMMERCE.”
