Shortly before a Bangor-area priest allegedly assaulted Philip Clark he told him: “Don’t mistake this collar for weakness,” according to testimony Monday.
Hours after the July 11, 2018, fight between Clark and the priest, the Rev. Anthony Cipolle, Clark allegedly killed his sister-in-law, Renee Henneberry Clark.
Philip Clark, 56, of Hampden has pleaded not guilty to intentional or knowing murder in the death of Henneberry Clark, 49. When confronted by police, Clark confessed to the slaying, attorneys for the defense and the prosecution said Friday.
Video and audio recordings from a Hampden police cruiser and an officer’s body microphone were played Monday afternoon on the second day of Clark’s murder trial in Bangor. Clark called police on July 11, 2018, at about 7:30 p.m. to report that Cipolle had beaten him up outside Clark’s apartment, William Miller, an investigator with the Hampden police, testified.
