(BANGOR) – An Orono man convicted in March of kidnapping and murdering a Glenburn teenager in 2013, learns his sentence Friday. And as our Laura Smith reports, it was an emotional day for both sides.
“We all hoped that we would get her home, and we all would find her,” Kristine Wiley, mother of 15-year-old Nichole Cable, said Friday. She was emotional throughout the sentencing, saying no amount of time behind bars will bring her daughter back.
“I don’t think I can ever find peace in what happened, what I imagine she went through, hearing my girls talk about her, ask questions, the things that they say. I don’t think there can ever be peace.”
Dube showed little emotion Friday, as a judge sentenced him to 60 years in prison for Cable’s murder, and 30 years for kidnapping. The judge ruling his sentences would be served concurrently, meaning at the same time.
“60 years is definitely appropriate, and he will be a very, very old man by the time he does get out of the prison,” Assistant Attorney General Donald Macomber said.
Dube used a fake facebook account to lure Cable to the edge of her driveway on Mother’s Day of 2013, strangling her and then dumping her naked body in the woods. Her body was found 8 days later in Old Town.
Dube’s attorneys have already appealed his conviction, they plan to also file an appeal for sentencing.
