AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Warden Service says six men have pleaded guilty to charges of illegally kill-ing and selling deer in Oxford County.
Officials announced Friday that the men have entered guilty pleas in District Court to charges that include night hunting, hunting in a closed season, exceeding the deer limit, theft of traps and trapping without a license.
The six were identified as Kyle Morgan of South Paris; Matthew Cole of Bryant Pond; Thomas Walker of Bethel; Matthew Walker of Bethel; Raymond Walker of Norway; and James Campbell of West Paris.
The men were charged last February following a two-year investigation by the warden service.
Wardens say the illegal acts took place in the South Paris, Greenwood and Bethel areas.
