BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A judge has found Jason Trickett not guilty of manslaughter.
Trickett admitted to stabbing Andy Smith in Bangor in May 2012. His attorneys claimed Trickett acted in self-defense coming to the aid of two women Smith was fighting with outside a gathering on First Street.
During the trial, the state played a recording where Trickett admits to stabbing Smith. Prosecutors argued Trickett never said he did it in self defense.
