Vermont Man Guilty In Colebrook Explosion Faces 30 Years
A 64-year-old Vermont man has been found responsible for the 2010 explosion in Colebrook that killed two men and injured a third.
Craig Sanborn’s trial in Coos County Superior Court in Lancaster took about four weeks and the jury made up its mind in about three hours on Wednesday, says Coos County Attorney John McCormick.
“The jury returned verdicts of guilty on all counts, two negligent homicide charges and two manslaughter charges,” he said.
Sanborn was accused of not providing proper safeguards at the Black Mag factory in Colebrook that made a gunpowder substitute.
An explosion at the plant killed Don Kendall and Jesse Kennett.
Sanborn denied responsibility for the accident saying he was out of state when the explosion occurred.
McCormick says Sanborn is facing up to thirty years in prison.
