    The lawyer for a 31-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing a woman in a Maine supermarket says he plans to plead guilty to murder.

    Police arrested Connor MacCalister, of Saco, in August and charged him with killing 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau at a Shaw's supermarket. Court records show a grand jury indicted him on Sept. 10.

    MacCalister's attorney Robert LeBrasseur says the guilty plea is not part of a negotiated deal and that his client is accepting responsibility for his actions. He says MacCalister will plead guilty on Oct. 8.

    MacCalister previously pleaded not guilty at a court appearance last month and a judge ordered him to undergo a mental exam.

    Records state that MacCalister said he was "off my meds" at the time of the stabbing.
