By Donna M. Perry, Sun Journal

FARMINGTON, Maine — A Chesterville man was indicted Tuesday in connection to the firing of a shotgun loaded with buckshot at a truck pulling away from his house in January.

Dennis Meaney, 26, was indicted on one felony count of aggravated reckless conduct and one misdemeanor count each of domestic violence criminal threatening and domestic violence assault.

Assistant District Attorney James Andrews previously said in a court hearing to lower Meaney’s bail that the probable cause document to get a warrant states that Meaney fired the 12-gauge shotgun at the truck that a man was driving that he believed was his wife’s “paramour.”

“The vehicle showed lead fragments in the tailgate, passenger compartment and windshield,” according to a Maine State Police report.
