By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (AP) One of three people accused of killing a man in a home invasion in Millinocket has admitted to the crime.

Court documents say 44-year-old Tony Locklear pleaded guilty Tuesday to murder, elevated aggravated assault and robbery.

His sentencing hasn't been scheduled yet.

In December of 2017, Wayne Lapierre and his wife, Diem, were shot in their home.

Wayne died at a hospital three days later, Diem survived.

Authorities believe Wayne Lapierre was targeted because he was a licensed medical marijuana grower who owned multiple businesses.

Tony Locklear, his 22-year-old daughter, Alexis Locklear, and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Christopher Murray were charged with murder.

Alexis Locklear is expected to change her plea January 22. Murray's trial is scheduled to begin January 28.
