Maine Man Accused of Killing Family Still Held Without Bail

GARLAND, Maine - Maine's court system is still determining when a man charged with killing his girlfriend and her two young children will face a bail hearing.

Keith Coleman of Garland faces three counts of murder for the deaths of 36-year-old Christina Sargent, 10-year-old Duwayne Coke and 8-year-old Destiny Sargent. A Maine attorney general's office spokesman says Coleman's court case is being continued "day to day'' by defense counsel.

Investigators say the three bodies were found Dec. 20 in a Garland mobile home Coleman shared with the victims. The 27-year-old Coleman appeared in a Bangor court on Dec. 22 and was ordered held without bail. Court-appointed attorney Martha Harris represented Coleman that day. She has not returned phone calls about the case.
