BANGOR, Maine — A Maine man charged with killing his girlfriend and her two children is set to make an initial court appearance in Bangor.

A spokesman for the Maine attorney general says 27-year-old Keith Coleman of Garland will appear at Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor at 2 p.m. on Monday. He faces three counts of murder in the deaths of 36-year-old Christina Sargent, her 10-year-old son Duwayne Coke, and her 8-year-old daughter, Destiny Sargent. State police say their bodies were found in the mobile home they shared.
