BANGOR – A Bangor man convicted of murdering a Second Street man was scheduled to be sentenced Monday but instead he asked for new lawyers, delaying his sentencing.
F. Daly, 31, faces 25 years to life in the shooting death of Israel “Izzy” Lewis. The 51-year-old was shot twice on Jan. 7 of last year at his room inside a boarding house on Second Street in Bangor.
Evidence at Daly’s September trial showed he confessed to his girlfriend and was seen by her washing a 9mm handgun in bleach
and he hid the gun in the ceiling of the Ohio Street apartment they shared. That gun was found by police.
Daly told Justice Ann Murray Monday he was not happy with his attorneys, Kaylie Folster and Jeffrey Silverstein, who argued there was no physical evidence linking their client to the killing.
The judge granted his request. He remains held at Penobscot County Jail.
