SACO, Maine (AP) - A lawyer for a man accused of randomly stabbing a woman in a Maine supermarket says he plans to plead guilty to murder.

Thirty-one-year-old Connor MacCalister is charged with killing 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau at a Shaw’s supermarket in Saco (SAY’-koh) on Aug. 19.

MacCalister’s attorney, Robert LeBrasseur, says that the guilty plea is not part of a negotiated deal and that his client is accepting responsibility for his actions. He says MacCalister will plead guilty Oct. 8.

MacCalister did not enter a plea at a previous court appearance. A judge ordered him to undergo a mental exam.

Records state that MacCalister said he was “off my meds” at the time of the stabbing. An affidavit shows he told police he had gone to the store to kill “several random people.”

This story has been corrected to show MacCalister entered no plea instead of a not-guilty plea at an earlier court appearance.
