Defense begins case in Coleman homicide trial

Triple homicide case continues

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Keith Coleman's murder trial will continue next week in Bangor.

In a videotaped interview played for the jury Friday, Coleman was accused of killing his girlfriend and her two children in Garland of 2014.

In the tape, Coleman said he hurt her because he wasn't there to protect her and the children when they were killed.

When Coleman took the stand, he said he went to the store to buy beer and then came home to the murder scene.

Coleman said he was too scared to call police. He believed his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend may have killed them.

Coleman could be sentenced to 25 years to life for murder.

He's also accused of sexually assaulting Sargent's daughter.

If convicted of that as well, he faces up to 30 years in prison.

The trial resumes again Monday morning at 9 a.m.
