Police Charge Man With Murder and Release Names of 3 Victims [UPDATE]
Police have released the names of the victims in a triple homicide. The bodies of a woman and two children were found in their mobile home Saturday night. The woman's boyfriend is in custody, charged with murder.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says deputies from the Penobscot County Sheriff's office were called by relatives to the mobile home at 12 Paul Road in Garland just before 10:00 Saturday night. They found the bodies of 36-year-old Christina Sergeant, her 8-year-old daughter Destiny Sergeant, and 10-year-old son Duwayne Coke.
Investigators say a man who also lived at the home, Keith Coleman, age 27, is charged with three counts of murder. Police asked for the public's help locating Coleman over the weekend. He was taken into custody Sunday at an apartment house in Bucksport, where he was visiting.
State Police detectives are working with the Penobscot County Sheriff's office, Bangor Police, and several other agencies investigating the circumstances behind the deaths. The bodies are being taken to the State Medical Examiner's office and will be autopsied to determine cause of death.
