Maine Inmate Charged With Attempted Murder In Attack On Corrections Officer
A former inmate at the Washington County Jail who was charged with manslaughter in the death of an Eastport man is now facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly attacking a corrections officer.
Hazen McDugald, 40, of Eastport, has been indicted by a Washington County grand jury on charges of aggravated attempted murder and assault on an officer. McDugald is accused of assaulting a corrections officer at the Washington County Jail in February. The officer was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
McDugald was arrested and charged with manslaughter after Maurice Harris, 75, was found dead in his Clark Street home on September 10, 2015.
McDugald has since been transferred to the Maine State Prison in Warren.
