    The protection order was granted to Lisa Black on Thursday. It prevents Charles Black from having any contact with his wife. It also banishes him from their Camden home and temporarily bans him from possessing any guns. He must relinquish any firearms or weapons he owns.

    All they'd have to do really is ban him from hiking.

    You have to be a really forgiving person to stay with someone you think tried to kill you before.

    On the third day of the attempted murder trial in Knox County Superior Court, Candice Carter, of Scottsdale, Ariz. said she and Black were high school sweethearts for one year until Black went to college. They did not have contact for 50 years until Carter contacted Black via Facebook out of curiosity, she said.

    Former Kansas teacher convicted of pushing wife off cliff

    ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — A former Maine man has been convicted of bashing his wife’s head with a rock and pushing her off a cliff in disputes over an affair and inheritance money.

    The couple, Charles and Lisa Black, had moved from Kansas to retire in coastal Maine. Before the fall in 2011, they’d argued about how he spent money from a $4 million inheritance from her father and over an affair he had.

    Jury finds Charles Black guilty of trying to kill wife on Camden’s Maiden Cliff


    ROCKLAND, Maine — A 71-year-old man faces up t0 30 years in prison after a jury convicted him of trying to kill his wife by pushing her off Maiden Cliff in Camden in order to have her money and be with his former high school girlfriend.

    The 11-women, one-man Knox County jury deliberated for 90 minutes before convicting Charles Reed Black of all charges, including attempted murder. Justice Joyce Wheeler ordered Black held without bail until sentencing is held.

    No date for sentencing has been scheduled.

    The victim was in the courtroom, surrounded her two daughters and friends, when the verdict was read. She began sobbing and hugged lead Detective Dean Jackson and District Attorney Geoffrey Rushlau. (more at link below)

    wow, renewing my stance for professional jurors. Deliberated for 90 minutes? just wow.

    I know only what has been reported but i did not think there was enough evidence to find him guilty.
