Man Accused of Killing 2 in Shooting Rampage Pleads Guilty

ROCKLAND, Maine - A Maine man who killed two people and wounded three others in a two-county shooting rampage is due to be sentenced next month on two counts of murder, two charges of attempted murder and other charges.
Anthony Lord, of Houlton, appeared in a Rockland courtroom Wednesday to plead guilty. Assistant Attorney General Leane Zainea says there's no plea agreement in the case.
Authorities say Lord went on a shooting rampage in July 2015 in northern Maine.
Police say 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt died of gunshot wounds.
Lord also was accused of kidnapping Hewitt's girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittany Irish, and shooting and wounding her 55-year-old mother, Kim Irish, at her home in Benedicta. Two others were wounded.
