MILLINOCKET — All three suspects in a fatal shooting in December in Millinocket are in police custody.

Maine State Police say Tony Locklear, 43, 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.
