BELFAST – A woman from Rockport is going on trial Tuesday for manslaughter.
Victoria Scott, 24, was arrested in May and charged with the stabbing death of Edwin Littlefield, 43.
Authorities said the two got into an altercation while visiting a home in Waldo and Littlefield pinned Scott to the ground and choked her.
The prosecution said Scott provoked the altercation.
The defense claims she was acting in self-defense when she used a pocket knife to stab Littlefield in the leg.
He later died from blood loss.
Scott’s trial got underway Monday morning in Belfast.
The jury was taken to the alleged crime scene in Waldo after opening remarks were presented.
