Skowhegan Woman Back in Court 

Vella Gogan of Skowhegan was summonsed Sunday for the theft of two pairs of shoes and two water bottles from a sporting goods store in Waterville. She was later jailed without bail for violating probation on her manslaughter conviction.

Gogan was charged with murder in 1999 for allegedly killing her husband in his sleep at their home in Hartland and cutting him into pieces. His dismembered remains were later found near a logging road more than 20 miles from their home.

Gogan maintained that she had been abused by her husband during their 37-year marriage and shot him out of fear that he was going to kill her.

She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter, spendingsix years in prison. She was released in 2006.
