Triple-killing trial beginning

BANGOR (AP) — Opening statements are anticipated in the trial of a man accused of killing his girlfriend and her two children in Garland.

Police say 29-year-old Keith Coleman chased down and strangled the children because they had witnessed their mother’s death in December 2014.

Jury selection at the Penobscot Judicial Center, is expected to wrap up this morning before opening statements.

Coleman has been charged in the deaths of 36- year-old Christina Sargent, 10-year-old Duwayne Coke and 8-year-old Destiny Sargent. Investigators say the bodies were found in a mobile home Coleman shared with the victims.
