(AP)- John A. Okie bludgeoned 19-year-old Alexandra ":Aleigh": Mills to death in her Wayne home on July 10, 2007. Six days later, he fatally stabbed his father, 59-year-old John S. Okie, during an argument in the family home in Newcastle.
The defense acknowledged that Okie was the killer but argued that he was not criminally responsible because of mental illness.
Justice Joseph Jabar imposed consecutive sentences of 30 years for each victim Friday in Superior Court in Augusta. In Maine, a murder conviction carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
