MILLINOCKET, Maine (WABI) Newly released court documents reveal that the three people accused of shooting and killing a Millinocket man went to his home to buy marijuana and steal money from him.

Tony Locklear of East Millinocket, his daughter Alexis Locklear and her boyfriend, Christopher Murray- both from North Carolina - are all charged with murder and robbery.

Murray appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded not guilty.

In December, police found Wayne Lapierre in the basement of his home on Massachusetts Avenue with his hands handcuffed behind his back and apparent gunshot wounds to his head.

Police say Lapierre's estranged wife, Diem Lapierre, had been shot in the head and face, too.

Wayne Lapierre was legally licensed to grow medical marijuana and owned other businesses as well.

Authorities say initially Diem told authorities she and Wayne had been jumped by two men wearing masks.

Court documents say the next day she told police Tony Locklear was a former employee of Wayne's and when he came to the home, she let him and the other two in.

She said both Tony Locklear and Murray had silver handguns, demanded money, and tied her hands and feet with rope.

She also said they took two diamond rings from her hand and 400-500 from a wallet before Murray allegedly shot her.

A safe in the basement was found was open.

Court documents don't say who shot Wayne Lapierre.

All three suspects took off and were later arrested out of state.

Tony Locklear has previously pleaded not guilty, too.

He and Murray are in the Penobscot County Jail.

Alexis Locklear is still fighting extradition in a North Carolina jail
