MACHIAS – Jury selection continues today for a man accused of murdering two people and setting their home on fire.
Matthew Davis is going on trial in Machias for the 2013 deaths of Heidi Pratt, 49, and Michael Kitchen, 51.
Authorities said Davis went to their home in Oakfield and shot the couple in their bedroom before setting the home ablaze and fleeing the scene.
The case was moved to Machias because of pretrial publicity.
Davis is facing two counts of murder, theft, arson and aggravated criminal mischief.
Testimony is expected to get underway as soon as a jury is seated.
