Jalique Keene Gets 58 Years For Raping, Killing Former Classmate
ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) — A man convicted of raping and killing a former high school classmate in Maine is going to prison for 58 years.
Jalique Keene was captured on surveillance video carrying the woman over his shoulder as she kicked her legs and later carrying her lifeless body to the woods, where she was found last year. The 22-year-old Keene was sentenced Wednesday in Superior Court in Ellsworth.
Keene and 19-year-old Mikaela Conley knew each other from Mount Desert Island High School. She was killed after giving him a ride from Boston Logan International Airport on May 31, 2018.
Keene testified there was a fight after the two had consensual sex.
Conley's stepfather told the judge Wednesday Keene started off as Conley's friend, but turned out to be a "wolf in sheep's clothing."
