Richard B. Uffelman has died in prison, according to the Maine Department of Corrections, which declined to give further details. He was roughly 74 years old.

In 1992, Uffelman was convicted in the murders of his neighbors, Michael and Florence Phillips on Aug. 29, 1989, in Machiasport. According to contemporary reports, the murders were recorded by a video camera the Phillipses had set up in their kitchen to record acts of harassment by Uffelman in a feud between the neighbors.
