A Presque Isle man convicted of manslaughter for delivering a brutal kick to a man who was on his knees has lost his appeal to the state supreme court.

Jonathan Limary contended he was denied a fair trial because the judge rejected questions he wanted to pose on a jury questionnaire.

He also said the evidence was insufficient to show whether the kick or the victim’s subsequent medical treatment caused the death.

The judge rejected his appeal. Limary, who is currently serving a 45-month prison sentence, claimed he was defending a friend when he kicked 44-year-old Jean Bragdon in 2017 in Caribou.
