Police: Maine man accused in shooting rampage that killed 2 people confessed to investigators

Maine state police say a gunman accused of killing two people chased down a woman he's accused of kidnapping after she fled through a bathroom window.

An affidavit providing details was made public Monday as 35-year-old Anthony Lord appeared before a judge in Houlton. In the document, police say Lord confessed to the shootings.

The shootings Friday in several northern Maine communities killed 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt.

Police say Lord kidnapped Hewitt's girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittany Irish, and shot her 55-year-old mother, Kim Irish, at a home in Benedicta.

Police say Brittany Irish nearly got away by flagging down a pickup truck but was abducted after Lord opened fire. She was with Lord when he was arrested at his uncle's home in Houlton.
