George Jaime 2

 

Thursday is day three of the murder trial of Presque Isle pawnshop owner George Jaime.  Detective Adam Stoutamyer was the first called to the witness stand in Houlton Superior Court. He recalled his first interview with Jaime at his pawnshop on June 12th, 2012. That interview was played for the jury to hear.  During the interview Jaime was questioned about Star Vining and he said she had disappeared. He told Stoutamyer that he knew Vining for two years around the time of 1998. Jaime also told Stoutamyer that Vining went out with a lot of guys and that she was heavily into drugs and he was trying to help her.  Two more members of the Jaime family also testified on Thursday. His ex-wife Ethel Jaime told the court that she was present when George Jaime told his son, Ted Jaime, and his other two sons Greg Jaime and George Jaime to “keep their mouths shut”. Ted Jaime testified on Tuesday and told the court he helped clean his fathers apartment the day after Vining was killed.  George Jaime’s other son George Jaime also testified this morning and told the court he was present when his brother Ted Jaime blamed his father for Star Vining’s disappearance.  The jury also heard numerous recorded phone calls made by George Jaime while he was held at the Aroostook County Jail after his arrest in the summer of 2012.  During one of those phone calls, while he was talking to his girlfriend at the time, he stated “I’ve done a lot of things in my life but I didn’t do it this time.”  Jaime is charged with intentional or knowing murder in connection with the death of Star Vining, who went missing more than 15 years ago.
