Lubec Man Accused of Killing Son Waits for Trial Date 

Catherine Pegram


A man from Lubec accused of killing his 12-year-old son could find out next month when he’ll go on trial.

44-year-old Edward Smith is charged with manslaughter, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs.

His adopted son, Aloric, died more than two years ago.

Assistant Attorney General Leanne Robbin says Aloric had diabetes and died when his father failed to provide medical care for him.

She says Smith also illegally gave his son Valium.

Smith’s lawyer says his client was a good father and did the best he could for his son.

Smith was arrested in Missouri last fall.

He remains in the Washington County jail on $5,000 bail.

A trial date could be determined for his case in July.
