Morrill Man Chokes Girlfriend to Death 

(AP) – Maine state police say a woman sent a text message to her daughter saying “he’s threatening to kill me right now” before being choked to death in her home in the town of Morrill. Court documents indicate Dennis Edgecomb later dialed 911 and told a dispatcher that he choked Pamela Green, who was dead when a deputy and state police detective arrived. Edgecomb made his initial appearance Wednesday in Waldo County Superior Court. Afterward, he was returned to jail. Edgecomb told investigators that Green attacked him Tuesday morning because he was making plans to move out. He also told officers on the scene that he “lost it” and how he “just didn’t stop.” (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
