LEWISTON, Maine — A local man was indicted on a charge of murder Wednesday in the 2013 slaying of another Lewiston man, according to reports.

William True, originally charged with hindering apprehension, now faces a murder charge in the slaying of 20-year-old Romeo Parent, according to a Lewiston Sun Journal report.

If convicted, True could spend the rest of his life behind bars.

According to the report, new information received by prosecutors persuaded them to pursue the murder charge against True.

True’s attorney said last week that he had been informed new charges may be brought against his client.

Another man, Nathan Morton, 25, agreed to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit intentional murder and hindering apprehension two weeks ago, according to the report, and the exchange was a 20-year prison sentence with half of that time suspended.
