A man who was convicted of murder was released after being deemed he was too old to kill again, kills again.
Albert Flick killed his wife in 1979 by fatally stabbing her to death while the woman's young daughter was nearby. He was convicted of murder and served 25 years behind bars.
In a striking turn of events, Albert was deemed too old to kill again and released based on him “out living his ability to cause harm. At some point, Mr. Flick is going to age out of his capacity to engage in this conduct, and incarcerating him beyond the time that he ages out doesn't seem to me to make good sense from a criminological or fiscal perspective," Maine Superior Court Justice Robert E. Crowley said at the time.
Shortly after his release, Mr. Flick was convicted this week of fatally stabbing a Maine woman while her twin children watched. It took less than an hour for jurors in Auburn to find Albert Flick guilty of murdering Kimberly Dobbie, 48, outside a Lewiston laundromat on July 15, 2018.
Dobbie was stabbed 14 times and the wounds penetrated her heart and a lung, a state medical examiner testified.
Flick's sentencing is set for Aug. 9 and he could get anywhere from 25 years to life behind bars
