Updated 1 year ago

A judge has ruled that discussion of incriminating text messages a witness said she received from a Lewiston man charged with killing a woman whose body has never been found will be allowed at trial. The Androscoggin County Superior Court justice also ruled that tower data relating to defendant Buddy Robinson’s cellphone use between the time Christiana Fesmire went missing in July 2011 will be allowed at trial. The Sun Journal, reports that jury selection is scheduled for Monday. Prosecutors say the 31-year-old Robinson beat and drowned the 22-year-old Fesmire then drove her body to a wooded area and dumped it. The body has never been found. The pair lived in different units of the same Lewiston apartment building. Robinson’s lawyer says evidence points to an alternate suspect.
