Moore Verdict 

That is the verdict Friday in the case of a man accused of raping and murdering a Bangor woman.

Testimony concluded Thursday in Ashton Moore’s jury-waived murder trial.

Prosecutors say he sexually assaulted Christina Simonin before beating her to death in March of 2007.

They say he used a wheelbarrow to move her body outside a building on Union Street where it was later discovered by some teenagers.

Throughout the week, the prosecution presented a number of witnesses.

They also presented evidence they say implicates Moores in the crime, including blood stains found in his apartment, DNA found on Simonin’s clothing and surveillance video they say shows Moores pushing a wheelbarrow with an object covered in plastic.

The defense claims Moores is not guilty and authorities failed to investigate other possible suspects. They called just one witness Thursday.
