BELFAST, Maine (WABI) - A Belfast man accused of of killing a man involved with his girlfriend was in court Monday asking the state to reconsider his bail.

24-year-old Austin McDevitt is charged with the murder of 26-year-old Shane Sauer of Belfast.

Sauer was shot and killed at a home on Oak Hill Road in Swanville in March of last year.

Court documents say he and McDevitt were involved with the same woman.

McDevitt is requesting a new bail because of ongoing medical reasons.

He is currently in the the Knox County jail without bail.

The judge is allowing both sides to present written arguments in the case over the next three weeks, then he’ll decide.
