Man who Pleaded Guilty to Shooting Rampage to be Sentenced

BANGOR, Maine - A Maine man who pleaded guilty to killing two people and wounding three other people in a two-county shooting rampage is returning to court.
 
State prosecutors are seeking life sentences for Anthony Lord when he's sentenced Monday in a Bangor courtroom.
 
The rampage began in July 2015 when Lord set fire to a barn, stole firearms from a Silver Ridge Township home and beat a man after tying him to a chair.
 
That was just the beginning.
 
Killed were 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt at separate locations. 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.
 
Lord pleaded guilty last month. He has never explained his actions.
