Keith Coleman of Garland, was indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury on three counts of intentional or knowing murder. Colman is accused of slaying his girlfriend and her two children the weekend before Christmas.

Coleman lived with Sargent and her children at 12 Paul Road in Garland where their bodies were found about 9 p.m. Dec. 20 by concerned family members. All three were strangled, according to reports.
Coleman is being held without bail at the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor.
His arraignment date has not been set.
A New York man is accused of selling oxycontin here in Maine.
32 year old Jason Jones was arrested in Searsport last night and is now charged with drug trafficking. Maine drug agents say they've been investigating the illegal distribution of prescription drugs for the past several months. The trail led them to Jones who has been identified as the source of supply of oxycodone in the midcoast area.
Thousands of pills have been sold from Bangor, along the coast and even into the Augusta area. Officials say Jones was arrested last night when he agreed to drive from Bangor to Searsport to deliver 200 pills to a buyer at a convenience store. He didn't realize he was selling to an undercover agent.
