    Luc Tieman pleads not guilty to murdering his wife in Fairfield

    Luc Tieman, charged with killing his wife, Valerie, in August and burying her body in his parents? back yard in Fairfield, pleaded not guilty Friday to the charge of murder in Somerset County Superior Court in Skowhegan.

    Tieman, 33, who is being held without bail in Somerset County Jail in East Madison, walked into the courtroom just after 9 a.m. wearing jailhouse grays, his hands cuffed in front of him, and sat next to his lawyer, Stephen Smith.

    Tieman?s mother, Laurelle Tieman, sat alone in the front row, the only person other than press and court officials who attended the arraignment. She declined comment.

    Superior Court Justice Robert Mullen asked Tieman if he had seen a copy of the affidavit in the case, to which Tieman replied, ?Yes, your honor.?

    Asked if he had any questions, Tieman replied, ?No, your honor.?

    Mullen told Tieman he was charged with intentionally or knowingly murdering his wife Aug. 25.

    ?How do you want to plead?? he asked.

    ?Not guilty, your honor,? Tieman said.

    Mullen said the state is asking for a Harnish or bail hearing, and the court is continuing that request on a day-to-day basis. He told Tieman he would be held without bail until further order of the court.

    ?Is there anything else we need to discuss?? Mullen asked both Smith and Leanne Zainea, assistant attorney general. Both replied, ?No, your honor.?

    As Tieman walked out of the courtroom, he looked back at his mother with no expression on his face.

    Outside the courthouse, as he was being escorted to a transport van by Sheriff?s Deputy Wayne Kline, a Morning Sentinel reporter identified herself to Tieman, who said, ?I remember you.?

    Asked how he was doing, Tieman did not respond, but when asked if there was anything he wanted to say, he said, simply, ?God bless our families; God bless Donald Trump.?

    Zainea said outside the courthouse that the case is on order for trial, but she did not know when a trial would be scheduled.

    Tieman, a U.S. Army veteran, was indicted last month by a Somerset County grand jury on a charge of murder in connection with the death of his wife, who was 34.

    She was reported missing Sept. 9 by her parents, who live in South Carolina, after they had not heard from her for more than two weeks. Luc Tieman did not report her missing. He initially told police she disappeared from his pickup truck outside Wal-Mart in Skowhegan but later said she died of an overdose.

    In interviews with the Morning Sentinel, Tieman?s friends said he had been unfaithful to his wife and sought companionship with other women, telling them his marriage was ending around the time she disappeared.

    An autopsy report from the state Medical Examiner?s Office says she died of two gunshot wounds to the head and was found buried in Luc Tieman?s parents? backyard off Norridgewock Road in Fairfield.

    Buried with her body were a bottle of perfume, a bag of potato chips and a note reportedly apologetic in nature, according to the autopsy report.

    At the time of her death, Valerie Tieman did not work out of the home, but she was heavily involved with the Recycled Shakespeare Company, a theater troupe based in Fairfield, according to her friends. Emily Rowden Fournier, whose family runs the Shakespeare company, described Valerie Tieman as a sweet, caring woman who attended dinner parties at the Fournier home with her husband, Luc.

    Valerie and Luc were married two years ago in South Carolina. He had been married previously to Erin Merrin, of Texas, whom he met while they were students at Messalonskee High School in Oakland. Merrin said after the murder that she had been in touch with Valerie Tieman, as Luc was hoping to reconnect with his children, who live with Merrin. He and Merrin have four children together.

    Merrin said that there was domestic violence in their marriage and Luc Tieman was ordered by the court to have no physical contact with their children.

    The examination, to include a neuropsychological evaluation to assess brain function, is to be done under two categories — one for insanity and abnormal conditions or mind, and the other for mental condition relating to other issues, such as post traumatic stress, according to court documents.

    The report is to be sent to the defendant and his attorneys, but is otherwise impounded by the court.

    In her motion for a forensic evaluation, Zainea said the circumstances of Valerie Tieman’s death suggest Luc Tieman may have had mental illness issues, including neuropsychological issues. She noted that Luc Tieman was on his way to the Togus VA Medical Center in Augusta for crisis intervention Sept. 21, the day he was arrested.

    The murder is alleged to have taken place Aug. 25 — 15 days before Valerie Tieman’s parents reported her missing and five days before Tieman claimed his wife disappeared from the Wal-Mart parking lot in Skowhegan, although he did not report her missing. Her body was found Sept. 20. Valerie Tieman had been reported missing Sept. 9 by her parents who live in South Carolina.

    Zainea in her motion also noted that potential witnesses and people who know Luc Tieman considered him to be someone who was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from his service overseas in the military. She also notes that he may have been injured in a mortar attack and could have suffered physical injuries.

    Tieman is a disabled Army veteran who served in Iraq, Smith has said.

    So the guy who was instrumental Valerie's case was named Trooper of the year. I find this case fascinating. I wish there was more info /updates. I guess we'll just have to wait until it actually goes to court in 2018. I want to know about the potato chips, and see if my theory was correct.

    http://www.centralmaine.com/2017/06/...r-of-the-year/

    Maine State Police Detective Christopher Crawford, of Cornville, was named Trooper of the Year on Thursday by Maine State Police Chief Col. Robert Williams.

    Williams said Crawford is a “seasoned investigator who has been involved in several high profile investigations in recent years.” Crawford played a leading role in the homicide investigation of Valerie Tieman, of Fairfield, whose body was found buried in woods last August near her home. Her husband, Luc Tieman, is awaiting trial for murder. Crawford also has worked on the embezzlement case of former Anson Tax Collector Claudia Viles, and in a theft ring targeting Walmart stores in which $250,000 in cash was seized from a suspect’s home.

    a little update on one of our favorite crazies.

    http://www.pressherald.com/2017/11/1...sing-evidence/

    Fairfield man accused in wife’s slaying awaits hearing on suppressing evidence

    Tieman, 34, remains held without bail at the Somerset County Jail in East Madison as he awaits an evidence-suppression hearing scheduled for Dec. 4.

    His murder trial is scheduled for jury selection March 29, with the trial to follow on April 2.

    According to court records, Luc Tieman’s defense attorney, Stephen Smith, filed a motion to suppress as evidence statements Tieman is alleged to have made to state police detectives in September 2016.

    Smith says in the motion that Tieman was actually in police custody without the benefit of having been read his right to remain silent under the Miranda rules.

    According to a court affidavit filed by Detective Hugh Landry and cited in Smith’s motion to suppress: “Luc initially denied any knowledge of the body, then changed his statement,” saying that Valerie had a drug addiction and that he witnessed her overdose and die.

    “Luc said he brought home heroin for Valerie and loaded a needle for her. She took the needle and injected herself. Luc said Valerie smiled at him and then stopped breathing. Luc stated he left her in bed until late at night and then took her outside and dug a trench and buried her.”

    Smith contends that Luc Tieman made the statements to multiple police officers in what “a reasonable person” would perceive to constitute police custody.

    According to the autopsy report, Valerie Tieman’s cause of death was “gunshot wounds of head and neck,” and she was “shot by other person(s),” meaning it was not a suicide.

    When her body was found, it was “clad in damp clothing consisting of brown boots, bright yellow/green socks, a grey T-shirt, blue jeans and a navy shirt,” according to the report dated Oct. 5. It was signed by Clare Bryce, a medical doctor and deputy chief medical examiner who performed the autopsy Sept. 21, the day after Tieman’s body was found.

    Beneath the body were a bag of potato chips, a bottle of perfume and a note that “reportedly has an apologetic tone,” according to investigators.

    In interviews with the Morning Sentinel, Luc Tieman’s friends said he had been unfaithful to his wife and sought companionship with other women, telling them his marriage was ending around the time she disappeared.

    Lawyer wants man’s statements about wife’s death suppressed

    The lawyer for a Maine man charged with killing his wife and burying her in a shallow grave behind his parents’ home wants some of his client’s statements to police suppressed.

    The attorney, Stephen Smith, argued Monday that 34-year-old Luc Tieman was technically in police custody when he told officers he had seen his wife overdose. An autopsy found that she died of gunshot wounds to the head and neck.

    The Morning Sentinel reports that Smith says Tieman had not been read his rights.

    Fingers crossed we get to find out about the perfume and potato chips.

    https://www.centralmaine.com/2018/03...-county-court/

    Jury selection for murder trial of Luc Tieman underway in Somerset County court

    Jury selection got underway Thursday morning and will continue Friday with a new batch of possible jurors in the morning and final jury selection at 1 p.m.

    Mullen, absent the black judicial robe, spoke to each potential juror in chambers, a small office off the corridor of Superior Court. The room has a brick fireplace with birch logs in it and a wooden mantel with personal photos, an hourglass and a mock gavel on it. Law books line shelves, and there is baseball memorabilia on the wall.

    The jury pool Thursday morning was shown videos explaining the importance of a trial by jury. Potential jurors are selected randomly from Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicle rosters and given to the court system. They were told that once the trial begins, they must make a decision of guilt or innocence based solely on the evidence presented. Their determination must be beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Jury selection involves a two-step process called “voir dire,” Latin for “to say what is true,” Mullen explained. The first step is a general review using the questionnaires. The second step is speaking to each candidate individually to discover whether any of them know the parties involved or any witnesses who might be called to testify or are familiar with the case at hand.

    In the privacy of the judge’s chambers, each potential juror — called by number, not by name — was spoken to individually.

    Based on their answers on the questionnaires distributed earlier in the day, jurors were asked questions about their ability to preside over the trial. The two main questions covered whether reports in newspapers, television, radio and social media would affect their impartiality and if an extended trial and the investment of time in it would be a hardship on them.

    Many said they had heard the story of Valerie Tieman, some remembering reported details that included her body being found in a shallow grave 400 feet behind the house on Norridgewock Road in Fairfield.

    A court reporter typed away on a stenotype machine, recording every word while a court clerk collected the finished questionnaires. Most of the potential jurors told Mullen they knew of the story, but would not be convinced of guilt or innocence until they heard all of the evidence in the case.

    I just want to post this pic. Trial started yesterday.

    https://www.centralmaine.com/2018/04...-body-quickly/



    Inside Valerie Tieman’s shallow grave, police, in September 2016, found a Mason jar containing flower stems, a wedding band and a handwritten note on an index card.

    The note opened with the words “To my one and only Joy-Joy. Flower. Forever.”

    The words in the note read: “I love you Valerie Joy T. I’ll love you forever. Rest in peace. My heart in Jesus,” with an X and an O, “hugs,” exclamation points, and an apparent reference to Luc Tieman’s marriage nickname “Luc-e” the bear.
    Under the body, Bryant testified, police found a potato chip bag, a box of SweeTarts candy, a plaid shirt and a blue-and-gold woven knit hat.

    Beneath the body police also found a bottle of Gucci perfume called Guilty.

    I'm so glad I am not on that jury. I wouldn't be able to keep it together.



    It sounds like he dug the hole and thought "let me put her favorite things in with her"

    Drugs found in Valerie Tieman?s body did not kill her, medical examiner says

    Two gunshot wounds to the head and neck were the cause of death.

    That was the testimony of former state Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Clair Bryce on Wednesday, the third day of the trial of Luc Tieman, 34, who is charged with murder in the death of his wife, Valerie.

    There was no evidence of heroin found in Valerie?s body, Bryce told the jury of eight men and six women, including two alternatives.

    Luc Tieman told police the day his wife?s body was found behind his parents? home on Norridgewock Road in Fairfield that Valerie, who was 34, had died from a heroin overdose. He said he had brought her the heroin and that she died, smiling at him, after injecting the drug herself.

    Bryce testified that the autopsy revealed the presence of two opioid drugs in Valerie?s body. The autopsy found the presence of Tramadol, a synthetic opioid painkiller that is prescribed to manage moderate to severe levels of pain, and Buprenorphine, a schedule III synthetic opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction.
    ...and since I had to see it, you guys have to see it too!

    Tramadol and Bupe aren't strong at all.

    I don't understand what is going on with his hair. Is he combing the hair from the back of his head to the front?

    Wednesday, we learned more about the complicated personal lives of the Tiemans. Jurors heard testimony about the love triangle between Luc, Valerie and Billi Jo Hawes, a woman Tieman met on Facebook in the weeks leading up to Valerie's death, and whom he moved in with just one day after Valerie was killed.

    Hawes was the last witness to take the stand Wednesday, telling jurors her relationship with Tieman began on Facebook and quickly grew from there.

    They met in person for the first time on August 24th. She says they had sex in the woods that night following a party. Two days later, Hawes testified that Tieman moved in with her.
    According to Hawes, Tieman told her he wanted to marry her, going so far as to ask her stepfather for permission.

    Days after they moved in together, State Police contacted Hawes and began questioning Tieman in connection with Valerie's disappearance. He was charged with her murder nearly two weeks later.

    Several other friends of the Tiemans were offered immunity and testified in court Wednesday.

    Two women close to the couple claim the Tiemans were heavy drug users, and that Luc would often inject himself and Valerie with heroin and other drugs.

    Tieman's alleged infidelity was also addressed. Three women who took the stand Wednesday testified that Tieman reached out to them frequently, making advances and telling them he was “newly single”.

    Witnesses say many of his attempts to pursue women other than his wife happened during the time frame in which Valerie was missing.
