MILLINOCKET, Maine (AP) - All three suspects in a fatal shooting in December in Millinocket, Maine, are behind bars.

Maine State Police say 43-year-old Tony Locklear of East Millinocket was arrested Friday in Birmingham, Alabama. His daughter, 21-year-old Alexis Locklear, was arrested the day before in Maxton, North Carolina. Her boyfriend, 38-year-old Christopher Murray, is already in jail in Maine.

Police say Wayne Lapierre was attacked and shot inside his home on Dec. 19.

He died later at a Bangor hospital. His wife was injured but survived.

Police say Tony Locklear and Murray face charges including murder. A lawyer for Murray told the Bangor Daily News that police “got the wrong guy.” It was unclear if the Locklears had lawyers.
