A 77-year-old murderer — back on the streets because he was deemed too old to kill again — was convicted this week of fatally stabbing a Maine woman while her twin children watched.

It took less than an hour for jurors in Auburn to find Albert Flick guilty of murdering Kimberly Dobbie, 48, outside a Lewiston laundromat on July 15, 2018.

Her twin 11-year-old sons were nearby and security cameras captured the moments they ran to their mother as she was being killed.

"I'm glad the verdict is done and over and I'm glad he'll never be able to walk the streets again," Dobbie's friend James Lipps told reporters outside the court Wednesday.

Assistant Attorney General Bud Ellis said he'll ask a judge to make sure Flick doesn't see the light of day again.

The prosecutor told NBC affiliate WCSH in Portland that he was particularly saddened knowing that Dobbie's children will never be able to shake the impact of their mom's murder. The boys are now living with a grandmother in Massachusetts.

"What happened to these children is just horrific," Ellis said. "I know there is family involvement, services and we're hoping for the best."This wasn't the first time Flick has violently attacked a woman.
