    Maine Launches Review of State's Chief Medical Examiner

    Maine has launched a review of its chief medical examiner and his side consulting business.

    The Portland Press Herald reports the attorney general's office confirmed a lawmaker's complaint triggered the review this week.

    A mistrial was recently declared when Maine Chief Medical Examiner Mark Flomenbaum changed his opinion about the direction of the shotgun wound in a Windham murder case.

    The Bangor Daily News report s a Connecticut prosecutor wrote a 2016 letter to then-Attorney General Janet Mills about testimony Flomenbaum gave in a Connecticut case. Flomenbaum had given testimony as an out-of-state consultant during a child manslaughter trial that a judge deemed not credible.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Mills' spokesman said she doesn't recall seeing the letter and didn't know the extent of Flomenbaum's consulting business.

    Efforts to speak with Flomenbaum were unsuccessful Saturday.
