The Maine Supreme Judicial Court heard the appeal Feb. 10 of Andrew J. Kierstead, the 43-year-old Tenants Harbor man convicted of the 2012 shooting death of his friend. Kierstead, represented by attorney Steven Peterson, argues the court erred by denying his motion to suppress statements he made to police and others in the hours following the murder because, he contends, those statements were not made voluntarily, due to Kierstead's intoxication and emotional state when he made them.

The attorney for a Tenants Harbor man sentenced to 45 years for murder argued Tuesday before the state high court that his client was in such a bad state of mind when he confessed that the incriminating comments should not have been allowed. Defense attorney Steven Peterson also maintained that the 45-year prison sentence given to his client, Andrew J. Kierstead, was excessive and for a 40-year-old man amounts to a life sentence.
