A police affidavit released yesterday quotes the victim’s daughter as saying a phone caller told her that her brother owed the money.
Karie Lessard quoted the unidentified male caller as saying, ":they ain’t got the money, bring on the guns.":
Lessard fled the apartment.
When she returned, she found that her 52-year-old father, Richard Lessard, had been stabbed.
He was pronounced dead a short time later at a Lewiston hospital.
Police arrested 18-year-old Sergio Hairston of Lewiston, who’s been charged with murder.
Hairston made his initial court appearance yesterday and is being held in the Androscoggin County Jail pending a bail hearing Friday.
