ROCKLAND (AP) — A Maine man accused of shooting a man multiple times, killing him, is scheduled for a court appearance.

Andrew Kierstead of Tenants Harbor has been charged with murder in the death of 48-year-old Richard Mills on Thursday. Mills was found in his driveway in Cushing.

He was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center for evaluation and was transferred to the Knox County Jail over the weekend. Police have said the 40-year-old Kierstead was suffering from an undisclosed medical problem.

Police said the two men knew each other, but have not said what may have led to the shooting.
