The trial of two men accused of killing three Maine residents whose bodies were found in a burning car is set to open in Bangor.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Randall Daluz and Nicholas Sexton are charged in Penobscot County with three counts of murder and one count of starting a fire with the intent to destroy property. Jury selection begins Monday.

Authorities have said the victims were shot before the car was torched Aug. 13, 2012, amid a drug dispute.

The victims were 26-year-old Daniel Thomas Borders, of Hermon; 24-year-old Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, of Eddington; and 28-year-old Lucas Alan Tuscano, of Bradford.

Daluz, of Brockton, Mass., and Sexton, of Warwick, R.I., face a maximum penalty of life in prison without parole if convicted.
