North Carolina Woman Arrested For Millinocket Murder
A North Carolina woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of Millinocket man, Wayne Lapierre.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the U.S. Marshal's Service arrested 21-year-old Alexis Locklear in Maxton, North Carolina this morning. Locklear was indicted yesterday by the Penobscot County Grand jury for murder and robbery.
Locklear's father, Tony, and Christopher Murray were also indicted yesterday for Lapierre's death. Mr. Locklear remains at large and police believe he's probably in North Carolina or Tennessee. Murray, who is Alexis Locklear's boyfriend, was arrested in late December and extradited to Maine. She will be returned to Maine as a fugitive from justice.
Lapierre and his wife, Diem Lapierre, were shot during a home invasion in December. She recovered but Wayne died of his injuries. Police said at the time that they felt the couple's Massachusetts Avenue home was specifically targeted.
