Maine man who spent 25 years in jail for stabbing wife to death kills homeless mother in front of her children in identical attack
A 77-year-old man was released from prison after serving 25 years for murdering his first wife on the grounds that he was "not a threat". However, he is now back in jail after he murdered another woman in the same, brutal manner.
Albert Flick was sentenced to prison in 1979 for 25 years after he stabbed his wife 14 times in front of their daughter. He was released in 2004 after serving 25 years, but went back to jail in 2010 after assaulting another woman. He was then released in 2014 as he was deemed "too old" to be a threat.
Last year, Flick brutally stabbed a homeless mother, 48-year-old Kimberly Dobbie, 11 times in broad daylight in Maine. The incident took place in front of her children after he had stalked her for days.
Flick was convicted of murder on Wednesday but has not yet been sentenced. It is highly likely that he will spend the remaining years of his life in prison.
Assistant Attorney General Bud Ellis spoke with jurors and said that Flick was aware that Dobbie was leaving town soon.
As reported by DailyMail, Flick had wanted her all to himself and had thought to himself, "If I can't have her, I will kill her."
In the days leading up to the murder, he had stalked her and her children. Friends of Dobbie revealed that she tolerated his infatuation but did not want it.
According to Flick's defense attorney, Allan Lobozzo, there was no indication that his client was a threat to the public.
Dobbie had severe injuries and was stabbed so many times that it pierced her heart and her lung.
Her 11-year-old twin boys witnessed the entire attack and it was also caught on security cameras.
Two days before the killing, he had purchased a pair of knives from a Walmart.
On the day of the attack, he waited until the sidewalk was clear of people before attacking her.
Dobbie was talking on her cellphone when Flick approached her and stabbed her.
The attack was stopped by a witness who tackled Flick and kept his foot on his neck until the authorities had arrived.
Flick never revealed why he had committed the murder. He will be sentenced in August and faces life behind bars.
