BANGOR, Maine (AP) — The second suspect in the slayings of three people whose bodies were found in a burning car in a Bangor parking lot in August was arrested early Thursday in Massachusetts.
Nicholas Sexton, 31, of Warwick, R.I. was apprehended in Brockton, Mass., at about 4 a.m., according to a spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police.
Sexton is scheduled to be arraigned later Thursday in Brockton District Court on a fugitive from justice charge.
His arrest comes less than 48 hours after the only other suspect in the drug-related killings gave himself up to police in New Bedford, Mass.
Randall "Ricky" Daluz, 34, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in Penobscot County Superior Court in Bangor on murder and arson charges.
Sexton faces the same charges when extradited to Maine.
Three bodies were found inside a burning car with Rhode Island plates in a Bangor parking lot early on Aug. 13. Maine authorities have said the victims were shot before the car was burned.
The victims were identified as Daniel Thomas Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas Alan Tuscano, 28, of Bradford.
Sexton was tracked with the help Rhode Island State Police, the FBI and U.S. Marshals.
Authorities received a tip that led to the address of a Brockton woman where Sexton may have been staying, according to a statement from Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio.
Police were granted a "no knock" search warrant that was executed at 4 a.m. and Sexton was arrested in the residence.
