Deer hunter mistakenly shoots woman
A man blamed for a 2009 fire that destroyed a coffee shop where topless waitresses worked has been found guilty of arson. A jury convicted Raymond Bellavance Jr. on Friday after deliberating for four hours. Prosecutors said “anger and jealousy’’ caused Bellavance to set fire to the Grand View Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, where his ex-girlfriend worked as a waitress. Deputy District Attorney Alan Kelley told jurors Bellavance was “a volatile man’’ who was quick to anger because his former girlfriend was having a relationship with the shop’s owner.
