MACHIAS — A New York man charged with murder went before a Washington County judge Monday morning asking for the charge to be dismissed.
Carine Reeves, 40, is facing a murder charge in the death of 55-year-old Sally Shaw of New Gloucester three years ago.
Shaw’s body was found on July 19, 2017 on the side of a road in Cherryfield with a bullet wound in her head. Court documents state the case involved drugs and a love triangle.
Assistant Attorney General Leane Zainea said Justice Harold Stewart heard the arguments and will issue a written decision.
Also charged in Shaw’s death was Reeves’ former girlfriend, Quaneysha Greeley of Lewiston.
She entered a plea agreement in 2018 to testify against Reeves in exchange for the murder charge against her being dropped.
She remained at Washington County Jail until last Christmas, when she was released to await Reeves’ trial, which is currently scheduled for Aug. 24.
