BANGOR, Maine — The Maine Supreme Judicial Court rejected an appeal by a second New York man convicted in a shooting which left one person dead and another wounded in Bangor. maple gavel

Robert Hansley is serving a 50-year sentence, argued there was insufficient evidence and the judge made errors in his trial.

The court rejected his appeal Tuesday.

Hansley was convicted by a jury, while another defendant, Thomas “Ferg” Ferguson, was convicted by a judge in a jury-waived trial. Ferguson’s appeal was rejected in January.

Law enforcement officials say the two men, both from New York City, killed Robert Kennedy and wounded another man on Nov. 27, 2015, to settle a drug debt. The shooting took place at a Center Street apartment in Bangor.
