Two Men Sentenced For Killing Oakfield, Maine Man
HOULTON, Maine (AP) — A judge has sentenced the trigger man in a drug-related killing in northern Maine to 35 years while another man received four years and 239 days under a plea deal.
Marcus Asante, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, was convicted in November of the murder and robbery of an Oakfield man on Oct. 16, 2016. A second man, Darin Goulding, of Leominster, Massachusetts, testified against him under an agreement in which a felony murder charge was dismissed.
Both were sentenced Wednesday.
The body of 31-year-old Douglas Morin Jr. was found in his vehicle in Sherman, Maine. Prosecutors say Asante shot him nine times.
Officials say Asante and Goulding were among three people who traveled from Massachusetts for a drug deal. The third defendant, Tia Leigh Ludwick, is serving a 17-year prison sentence.
