PARIS, Maine — Defense attorney James Howaniec stopped just short of accusing 22-year-old Megan Plummer of conspiring with her younger sister to lie and convince a jury that Kristina Lowe was responsible for an accident in 2012 that killed Rebecca Mason, 16, and Logan Dam, 19.

Active-Retired Justice Robert Clifford quickly shut Howaniec down, but the outrage was clear among victims’ family members seated in the back of the courtroom.

Friday was the second full day of testimony in the double manslaughter trial of Lowe, 21, of West Paris in Oxford County Superior Court. She faces five felony charges, two of manslaughter, two of aggravated criminal operating under the influence and one of leaving the scene of a fatal accident on Route 219 in West Paris.
