Fortune Sentenced to Life in Prison 

A Superior Court judge has sentenced a man to two life terms in a 2008 machete attack that left a father and daughter permanently injured. Calling 22-year-old Daniel Fortune an extremely dangerous young man, Justice Michaela Murphy handed down the sentence Thursday in Kennebec County Superior Court.The sentences will be served concurrently. Last month, a jury found the Augusta man guilty in attacks on William Guerrette and his daughter Nicole, who was 10 at the time. Assistant District Alan Kelley says the sentences are appropriate given the cruelty of the acts.
