Albert Flick first landed in prison in 1979, when he was found guilty of stabbing his wife to death in front of her young daughter.

Flick was an Army Veteran who had spent 19 years working at the same doughnut shop in Westbrook, Maine. Flick's violent tendencies didn't seem likely to go away with age, both the prosecutor and his probation officer warned. But Maine Superior Court Justice Robert E. Crowley chose to sentence Flick to less than four years behind bars, noting he would be at least 72 years old by the time he was released.

It took jurors in ME less than an hour to find Albert Flick, 77, guilty in the 2018 murder of a homeless mother, Kimberly Dobbie, who was stabbed at least 11 times while her twin sons watched.

Clement is mostly made her peace with her mother's murder, but says she can't fathom why Flick was repeatedly allowed to walk free. Flick faces at least 25 years in prison, and prosecutors have said they will seek a life sentence. This time he was released in 2014 from prison because the judge said he was too old to pose a threat to society.

A jury took only 40 minutes to deliberate before finding Flick guilty.

Albert Flick, 77, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 1979 after stabbing his wife 14 times in front of their daughter.

Her two sons witnessed the whole scene, which was also videotaped by surveillance cameras. The neighbor passed Flick in the stairs, covered in blood.

She was sitting on a step outside a building, talking on her cellphone at the time.

Flick was released nine years early for good behavior, according to WCSH.

Among those who testified were friends of the woman who said that she tolerated his affection but did not want it. In 2010, after being released yet again, he assaulted another woman and was incarcerated, according to The Washington Post. Police found Flick trying to hang himself from a fire escape when they arrived at the building.

After being released from jail for assaulting a woman in 2010, a judge believed Flick was unlikely to reoffend due to his age - then in his late 60s. "At this point, I just don't know what else to do".

Those warnings proved to be prescient. "Al may have wielded the knife, again, but this time there are others who should be held accountable", she continued.

After getting out, he relocated to the Lewiston area.

In the days before the murder, he trailed her and her children around the town where they were living, to Dunkin' Donuts, a local library and to the bus shelter. Was there ever a complaint to police of him following her around?

According to Assistant Attorney General Bud Ellis, when Flick heard Dobbie was leaving Lewiston, Maine, he decided, "If I can't have her, I will kill her". "And that's exactly what he did".

Crowley, the judge who predicted that Flick would "age out" of his violent behavior, retired from the bench in 2010, the same year that he handed down the almost four-year sentence.
