A Maine man who pleaded guilty to killing two people and wounding three others is going to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

A judge on Monday imposed a life prison sentence on Anthony Lord at the Penobscot Judicial Center. In Maine, there's no possibility of parole.

The rampage began in July 2015 when Lord set fire to a barn, stole firearms from a Silver Ridge Township home and beat a man after tying him to a chair.

That was just the beginning.

Killed were 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt at separate locations. Lord also kidnapped Hewitt's girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittany Irish, and shot and wounded her 55-year-old mother, Kim Irish, at her home in Benedicta. Two others were wounded.
