BANGOR — The attorney for one of two men convicted in a drug-connected triple slaying in Maine will file a request for a new trial for his client.

Hunter Tzovarras, attorney for Randall Daluz, said Thursday he believes trying Daluz and Nicholas Sexton together hindered Daluz.

Tzovarras plans to file for a new trial within a week.

A jury Wednesday convicted Daluz of three counts of murder and one count of starting a fire. Sexton was convicted of one count of murder and one count of starting a fire.

The pair was arrested for the drug-related killings of 24-year-old Nicolle Lugdon, of Eddington, 26-year-old Daniel Borders, of Hermon, and 28-year-old Lucas Tuscano, of Bradford and burning their bodies in a car. Sexton’s attorney has said he will appeal the conviction.
