Man Arrested in Random Killing of Christmas Tree Farmer
SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) — Police say they've arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with the killing of a Maine tree farmer that shook the community where he has been a fixture for decades.
James Pearson was killed in the front yard of his Scarborough home Sunday morning in an attack that police have described as random.
Maine State Police announced Tuesday they have charged Quinton Hanna with murder in connection with Pearson's killing.
The Portland Press Herald reports there is no indication Hanna and Pearson knew each other. It wasn't immediately clear if Hanna had a lawyer.
