Fatal Stabbing Trial in Maine Has Jury
AUBURN, Maine (AP) — A jury has been selected for the murder trial of a man accused of fatally stabbing a woman in front of her 11-year-old twins in Lewiston, Maine. The trial starts next week.
Albert Flick, who's using an insanity defense, originally requested that his case be heard by a judge without a jury. But he changed his mind and requested a jury trial. The jury was selected Monday.
The victim, 48-year-old Kimberly Dobbie, was attacked outside a laundromat in July 2018. Bystanders tackled Flick, then 76, and held him for police.
Flick was convicted of murder in 1979 in a similar case in which he stabbed his wife, Sandra Flick, 14 times in front of their child. He's been in trouble with the law several times since his 2000 release. Charges included domestic violence assault and criminal threatening.
