The trial is scheduled to start for a New Hampshire man accused of breaking into a Maine home and shooting his wife and the homeowner.

The case of 58-year-old Gregory Owens of Londonderry is scheduled for Thursday in York County Superior Court in Alfred, Maine. He is facing 14 charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Authorities allege the Army veteran broke into the Saco home on Dec. 18 and shot his wife, Rachel Owens, and the homeowner.

Prosecutors say Gregory Owens was having an affair, and the woman had threatened to tell his wife.

Owens has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he could face up to life in prison.
