From WCME News:
In Portland today, a substantial reduction in bail for one of the four suspects in the murder earlier this year of 43-year-old Derry Coffin of West Bath, (pictured), believed to have been drug-related.
Justice MaryGay Kennedy reduced bail for 44-year-old Thomas McDonald of Westbrook from $500,000 to $50,000 in the course of a Zoom hearing, in which MacDonald appeared from the Aroostook County jail in Houlton, where he is now being held.
MacDonald’s attorney said that prior to his arrest in this case in June, McDonald had only one recent conviction in nearly 25 years, for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
MacDonald, who faces charges of felony murder and robbery, is said to have told police he did not know that the gun used in the murder was loaded, and found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, hanging out with the wrong people.
