BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Maine man charged with killing his girlfriend and her two young children will appear in court on Dec. 30 for a bail hearing.

Keith Coleman faces three counts of murder in the deaths of 36-year-old Christina Sargent, 10-year-old Duwayne Coke and 8-year-old Destiny Sargent. The 27-year-old Coleman appeared in a Bangor court on Monday and was ordered held without bail pending a hearing.

A court affidavit says Coleman told investigators he chased down and strangled the children because they had witnessed their mother’s death. Investigators say the three bodies were found Saturday in the mobile home Coleman shared with the victims in Garland.

Court-appointed attorney Martha Harris represented Coleman on Monday. She did not immediately return a phone call on Tuesday.
