(AP) Ashton Moores, who’s 61, was sentenced Thursday in Penobscot County Superior Court.
The sentence was imposed by Justice William Anderson, who presided at Moores’ jury-waived trial in November.
Moores was accused of killing Christina Simonin in his First Street apartment, hauling her body away in a borrowed wheelbarrow and dumping the body behind an apartment building, where it was found on March 3, 2007.
A medical examiner said Simonin died of ":multiple traumatic injuries.":
