Former convict who shot 5 people, killing 2, to make his first court appearance.

HOULTON, Maine (AP) — A gunman charged with killing two men in separate shootings and kidnapping a woman who had managed to escape from him through a bathroom window confessed to the killings, state police said.A former convict who has been charged in a Maine spree of violence that left two dead will appear in court in the town where he was apprehended Friday. A state police affidavit providing details of the shooting rampage was made public Monday as Anthony Lord appeared before a judge via video from jail. Anthony Lord, 35, was arrested Friday after police say he beat a man, stole guns and a pickup truck, kidnapped a young woman, and shot five people, killing two.

Carl Lord told the Associated Press that Anthony Lord’s mother and other family members gathered at his home Friday when they heard that his nephew was the suspect. Lord kidnapped Hewitt’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittany Irish, and shot and wounded her 55-year-old mother, Kim Irish, at a home in Benedicta hours after someone set fire to a barn, police said. Then the suspect pulled the magazine from the handgun he was holding, dropped the weapon in a vegetable garden, removed the bullets, and then handed over a pocket knife, Carl Lord said. “He didn’t have any emotion. He looked at me when he unloaded the gun like it was something that he was bound and determined to do,” Lord said. “When he dropped that gun, I just knew deep down that nobody else was in trouble.
