January 28, 2019

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A trial is set for the last of three people charged in a home invasion that left a Maine man dead.

Prosecutors say Tony Locklear, Alexis Locklear and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Christopher Murray, shot Wayne Lapierre and his wife at their home in Millinocket in December 2017. Wayne Lapierre later died at a hospital from his wounds.

Murray, of Red Springs, North Carolina, is scheduled to stand trial on Monday.

Tony Locklear pleaded guilty to murder on Jan. 8, and his 22-year-old daughter, Alexis, of Maxton, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to robbery last week.

Court documents indicate the trio went to the home of Lapierre, a businessman and medical marijuana grower, to rob him. They fled with marijuana and cash.
