Defendant Weeps On Stand In Triple-murder Trial 

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — One of two men accused of killing three people and burning their bodies after a drug dispute in Bangor, Maine, is testifying in his defense.

Nicholas Sexton of Warwick, Rhode Island, wept on the stand Monday while describing one of the victims, 24-year-old Nicolle Lugdon of Eddington, as a friend.

He and Randall Daluz, of Brockton, Massachusetts, are on trial at Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor in connection with the 2012 shootings. Sexton testified that he doesn’t like guns.

The men are each charged with three counts of murder and one count of arson. Daluz’s defense team is expected to present its case after Sexton’s defense rests. Prosecutors rested Friday.

The other victims were 26-year-old Daniel Borders of Hermon, and 28-year-old Lucas Tuscano of Bradford. Trial began May 1.
