Judge rules that suspects in triple slaying in Maine will be tried together

Share/Save/Bookmark

BANGOR, Maine — A judge has ruled that two men charged in the shooting of three Maine residents whose bodies were found in a burning car in Bangor will be tried together.

WABI-TV (http://bit.ly/1jE0YLV ) reports that a judge ruled last week that Randall Daluz (duh-LOOZ') of Brockton, Massachusetts, and Nicholas Sexton, of Warwick, Rhode Island, will be tried together before one jury.

Jury selection is scheduled to start April 28.

Their lawyers had argued for separate trials, saying evidence against one man could unfairly prejudice the jury against the other. The prosecution argued against separate trials.

The suspects have pleaded not guilty to killing Daniel Borders, of Hermon; Nicolle Lugdon, of Eddington; and Lucas Tuscano, of Bradford in August 2012.

Police say Sexton and Daluz killed the victims in a drug dispute.
