Movies: "Men in Black III"

Movies: "Men in Black III"

 

The summer of sequels rolls on with “Men in Black III,” another lightweight outing with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as those ultra-secret government agents tasked with wrangling space aliens here on Earth.

 

This time around, Agents J (Smith) and K (Jones -- come to think of it, why didn’t they just name these spooks after their actors’ real names?) have a fierce villain to content with:  Boris the Animal (roaringly played against type by Jemaine Clement of “Flight of the Conchords”), who goes back in time to kill Agent K, the agent who shot his arm off and locked him up back in 1969.

 

Weidul found guilty of manslaughter

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A jury has found Ernest Weidul guilty on all three counts against him.

Jurors spent about four hours over two days deliberating before convicting Weidul of manslaughter, aggravated assault and operating after suspension.

Weidul says Downs became increasingly annoying, poking and provoking him, after a day of heavy drinking. Weidul lashed out punching Down repeatedly in the face, head and neck. Downs went to Mercy Hospital where he died two days later.

Weidul manslaughter case goes to the jury

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Jurors are deciding the fate of Ernest Weidul in an unusual manslaughter case.

The state claims Roger Downs Jr. Died as the result of a brutal beating at the hands of Weidul. The defense claims the beating was self defense and that Downs actually died from pneumonia.

At the start of this trial it looked as though the defense would be relying heavily upon it's theory that Roger Downs Jr. had pneumonia that went undetected by doctors at Mercy Hospital and that was the cause of death. But in his closing argument Weidul's attorney Tom Connolly spent most of his time focused on the other defense theory. That this was a case of self defense.
