Man convicted in fatal stabbing is back in prison

FARMINGTON, Maine — A 26-year-old Farmington man convicted of manslaughter for the 1999 stabbing death of a neighbor has been ordered to serve six of the 13 years remaining on his sentence after his probation was revoked.

Jeremiah Paulton was found guilty in January of threatening to kill his girlfriend. The Sun Journal said District Court Judge Valerie Stanfill sentenced Paulton on Monday to 364 days for misdemeanor terrorizing, which will run concurrent with the probation revocation.

Paulton was 16 when convicted of stabbing Blaine Jasper. He served time in a juvenile facility before being tried as an adult and sentenced to serve seven years of a 20-year sentence.

Paulton was released in 2005.
