Man Sentenced To Life For Killing Lowell Police Sergeant's Sons


LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been convicted of killing the sons of a retired Massachusetts police sergeant.

The Middlesex district attorney says 33-year-old Dara Poum, of Chelsea, was convicted by a jury Wednesday of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2014 shooting deaths of 29-year-old Joseph Callahan and 35-year-old Keith Callahan in their Lowell home.

Poum was also found guilty of armed home invasion and possession of a firearm without a license.

The victims were the sons of former Lowell Police Sgt. Richard Callahan.

Prosecutors say Poum was tied to the crime scene through DNA evidence and buried the gun he used in the garden behind his girlfriend's father's residence, where he had been visiting the night of the shootings.

Poum faces life in prison with no parole at sentencing.
