CARIBOU – The trial for a Caribou man who is facing up to 30 years in prison if convicted in the beating death of another Caribou man began Tuesday in Aroostook County Superior Court.
Jean Bragdon, 44, was injured in a fight with Jonathan Limary in Caribou back on Oct. 30, 2017. Bragdon died from post-surgical complications on Nov. 17. The following January, Limary, who is now age 23, was indicted for manslaughter and aggravated assault.
“We were pleased with the presentation of evidence today including that which was introduced regarding Mr. Limary’s use of justifiable force and the cause of death, which is important in this case,” said Adam Swanson, who is representing Limary along with Hunter Tzovarras.
The jury trial is expected to last four days with Superior Court Justice Harold Stewart ii on the bench.
