BANGOR, Maine (AP) – A Bangor man accused of killing his 49-year-old girlfriend has tearfully pleaded guilty to manslaughter. David Coon told a judge Thursday that “I lost my girlfriend which wasn’t supposed to happen.” ┬áHe also told the judge that he loved the victim, Sherry Clifford. But Superior Court Justice Ann Murray didn’t accept his plea, and the hearing was continued. A police affidavit indicates Coon told investigators that the two were on the floor in a tussle when he covered her mouth to keep her from screaming. The medical examiner concluded Clifford died from asphyxiation and a neck injury.
