HOULTON, Maine (AP) - Jury selection is set to begin in the trial of a Massachusetts man in a drug-related killing in Sherman.

Two of three defendants pleaded guilty to charges including felony murder and robbery.

Tia Ludwick pleaded guilty in February to murder and robbery. She was sentenced to seventeen years in prison in April.

Darin Goulding pleaded guilty to robbery in February.

Jury selection begins today for the third defendant, Marcus Asante. Opening statements are scheduled for early next week.

Asante is charged with murder.

Officials say the three traveled from Massachusetts for a drug deal.

Thirty-one-year-old Douglas Morin Jr., ended up being killed on Oct. 16, 2016. His body was found in his vehicle in Sherman. He'd been shot twice in the back of the head.
