BANGOR — Prosecutors are hopeful a jury will be selected Thursday in the trial of two men accused of killing three Maine residents whose bodies were found in a burning car in Bangor.

The process of selecting a jury for the murder trials of 36-year-old Randall Daluz and 33-year-old Nicholas Sexton began Monday, and prosecutors hope the process will be completed Thursday morning.

Daluze and Sexton are charged with three counts of murder and one count of starting a fire.

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

The car, tagged with Rhode Island license plates, was found ablaze Aug. 13, 2012, in a Bangor parking lot.
