HOUL­TON, ME. — A gun­man charged with killing two men in sep­a­rate shoot­ings and kid­nap­ping a woman who had man­aged to es­cape from him con­fessed to the killings, po­lice said in an af­fi­davit made public Mon­day. An­thony Lord ap­peared be­fore a judge via video from jail. The 35-year-old Lord en­tered no plea to mur­der and kid­nap­ping charges. His at­tor­ney re­quested a men­tal health eval­u­a­tion. The shoot­ings Fri­day in Maine left 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle He­witt dead from mul­ti­ple gun­shot wounds. Lord kid­napped He­witt’s girl­friend, 22-year-old Brit­tany Ir­ish, and shot and wounded her 55year-old mother, Kim Ir­ish. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­port, Brit­tany Ir­ish es­caped through a bath­room win­dow, flagged down a pickup truck and jumped in the back be­fore Lord opened fire and kid­napped her. The truck driver was shot through the win­dow but sur­vived. Brit­tany Ir­ish was with Lord when he was ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent Fri­day af­ter­noon, po­lice said. The re­port said Lord told de­tec­tives he be­lieved he shot five peo­ple, in­clud­ing three who sur­vived. The As­so­ci­ated Press
