    A federal court judge in Bangor denied bail Monday to Sidney Kilmartin, 52, the South Windham resident indicted in early November on charges of mailing potassium cyanide to a suicidal man in Hull, England...

    According to the indictment, Kilmartin sent the cyanide “with the intent to kill or injure” Andrew Denton, 49, a Hull man who was found dead on Dec. 31, 2012, according to media reports. Denton’s blood contained high levels of cyanide, according to the reports...

    His case is set to go to trial April 7.

    Authorities haven't said how Kilmartin got the poison or how he and Denton found each other. English police say Kilmartin and Denton exchanged emails in which Kilmartin offered to sell Denton cyanide and gave him advice on using it.

    The court trial of an American national, who allegedly provided cyanide to a British man who later committed suicide, has been rescheduled. The defendant has pleaded guilty to the federal charges pressed against him in connection to the death.

    (...) Sidney Kilmartin will appear in court on the new schedule in October. He was initially due to stand trial next month; however, it was changed to accommodate a new lawyer. Kilmartin was charged of mailing injurious articles resulting in death, as well as wire fraud, mail fraud, witness tampering and witness retaliation.
