Albert Flick killed his wife in 1979, then spent additional time behind bars for assaulting women on multiple occasions. Despite his violent history, he was freed one last time and killed Kimberly Dobbie in front of her sons last summer.
Officials in Maine thought a 77-year-old man who’d previously served time for murdering his wife and assaulting several different women was too old to be dangerous. They were very wrong.
Albert Flick was found guilty in the 2018 murder of Kimberly Dobbie. Flick had stabbed Dobbie, a homeless woman, in front of her two children on July 15, 2018. Flick had previously been found guilty in the death of his wife, Sandra Flick, who he’d stabbed to death in front of her daughter on Jan. 31, 1979 — weeks after she’d served him divorce papers.
Flick had been released in 2000 for that crime after being jailed at the Maine State Prison for just over 20 years. But in 2007, Flick was charged after once again violently attacking a woman he had been seeing romantically. In 2010, after being released yet again, he assaulted another woman and was incarcerated.
Prosecutors at the time pleaded with a judge for a harsh sentence, believing Flick would only become increasingly belligerent as he grew older. Obviously we know now this was exactly right!
Flick met Dobbie while living in Lewiston, Maine and quickly became infatuated with her. Witnesses said he was obsessed with her and would follow her throughout her day, though the feelings were apparently not mutual. He ended up attacking and killing her last summer, in front of a laundry mat in broad daylight.
A jury took only 40 minutes to deliberate before finding Flick guilty. Somehow he was able to fool them before, not this time. Now he’ll die in prison like he should’ve to begin with.
Sandra Flick’s daughter, Elsie Kimball, now blames many individuals in the justice system for allowing her mother’s killer to be freed. I don’t even blame her, I’d feel the same way. He never should’ve been released, drug addicts can be rehabilitated, not fucking psychopaths.
