Lopes allegedly shot Chesna several times using the veteran officer's own gun. Chesna died, as did 77-year-old Vera Adams, who was in her home when Lopes allegedly saw her through the window and targeted her.

Officers packed the courtroom during Lopes' arraignment on Tuesday. A judge ordered him held without bail on two counts of murder.
