    Maine Department of Public Safety

    A Maine man charged with killing his girlfriend and her two young children last year has pleaded not guilty in Superior Court in Bangor.

    Twenty-seven-year-old Keith Coleman of Garland entered the plea Friday afternoon. Police charged him with three counts of murder in the deaths of 36-year-old Christina Sargent, 10-year-old Duwayne Coke and 8-year-old Destiny Sargent.

    Coleman has been held without bail since his arrest.

    Investigators say the bodies were found Dec. 20 in a Garland mobile home Coleman shared with the victims. A court affidavit says Coleman told investigators he chased down and strangled the children because they had witnessed their mother's death.
