77-Year-Old Convicted of Stabbing Woman 11 Times in Maine
AUBURN, Maine (AP) — A 77-year-old man who stabbed a woman at least 11 times outside a laundromat while her 11-year-old twins watched has been convicted of murder.
A jury deliberated less than an hour before convicting Albert Flick on Wednesday in the death of 48-year-old Kimberly Dobbie in July 2018 in Lewiston, Maine.
Surveillance video captured the attack along with Flick's purchase two days earlier of a pair of knives. Prosecutors say Flick was infatuated with Dobbie and followed her around.
Flick has a long history of violence against women and was sentenced to prison for stabbing his wife 14 times in front of their child in 1979. A judge who sentenced Flick for assaulting another woman in 2010 said he would no longer represent a threat because of age.
