CORINTH, Maine (WABI) - A convicted murderer living in Corinth was sentenced to six years in prison today for illegal possession of a firearm.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the FBI and Texas Police were looking for 73-year-old Francis Cahill, also known as Bruce Cossett, and learned he may have moved to Maine.

Maine State Police found a .22 caliber rifle and 12-gauge shotgun at his Corinth residence.

Cahill is prohibited from possessing firearms after a 1978 murder conviction in Texas.

Cahill pleaded guilty to the firearms charge in March.
