The judge at the time ignored the recommendation for a longer sentence, saying Flick wouldn't be a threat because of his age and it didn't make sense to keep him locked up.
A ME jury Wednesday convicted a 77-year-old man, once deemed too old to be a continued threat, with the death of a woman in 2018.
It wasn't his first murder, though: Flick was convicted of killing his wife almost 40 years ago in an eerily similar attack.
He was convicted of murder on Wednesday and is yet to be sentenced but will likely now spend the rest of his life in prison. But in 2007, Flick was charged after once again violently attacking a woman he had been seeing romantically. The charges carry a minimum 25-year sentence, and prosecutors plan to request that he be placed behind bars for life. The judge, however, cut the sentence in half and only sentenced Flick - who was in his late 60s at the time - to just four years imprisonment.
Flick was released on good behavior in 2000 but found himself back in jail seven years later, convicted of stabbing his girlfriend with a fork and then trying to intimidate her into not testifying. According to testimony, Sandra invited Albert over to pick up his belongings when he stabbed her 15 times in the head, neck and heart.
Three years later, in 2010, a woman told authorities she and Flick argued, he put her in a headlock and repeatedly hit her with the butt of his knife, then chased her with a screwdriver before she escaped, the Washington Postreports. The septuagenarian pleaded guilty to violating his probation, and was sent back to prison until 2016.
A 77-year-old convicted murderer released on the assumption he was too old to kill again has been convicted of stabbing a ME woman to death while her twin children looked on in horror. Her 11-year-old boys were nearby, witnesses said.

In the days before the murder, he trailed her and her children around the town where they were living, to Dunkin' Donuts, a local library and to the bus shelter. Flick, the New York Times reports, offered to buy her sons nutritious meals.
Two days before the murder Flick purchased a pair of knives at a Walmart, prosecutors said.
Flick's lawyer, Allen Lobozzo, tried to convince the jury that the man posed no threat leading up to the fatal attack and that Dobbie had not complained to cops about the accused harassing her.
Dobbie was on the phone at that time. He ran outside and drop-kicked Flick, holding the elderly man to the ground with his foot until police arrived.
Flick's friendliness apparently became too overbearing, and Dobbie eventually ended up asking him to leave her alone. "It was soul-crushing for them", juror Caitlain Jasper said. He told the Press Herald, which noted that he was stepping down while "at the top of his game", that he wanted to return to private practice. "She was bleeding everywhere".
The jury from the most recent trial was not made aware of his rap sheet but they took 40 minutes to present a guilty verdict to the courtroom. His sentencing hearing is set for August 9. Flick faces 25 years.
"I firmly believe this could have been prevented", Elsie Clement, told the Press Herald.
