News

ALFRED, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Jeffrey Williams and his sister, Darlene George, were sentenced Monday for the murder of George's husband in 2008.

Williams was sentenced to life in prison and George received a 40 year sentence.

In June of this year, a jury convicted Williams and George of murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Winston George.

Darlene George reported the crime as a home invasion by men who were looking for drugs and money, but jurors didn't but that story.

Investigators determined the home invasion was staged, that Darlene George plotted her husband's murder and recruited her brother to carry it out.

Reny Cassimy, a tenant in the building the Georges owned, was also charged with murder and attempted murder in this case. Cassimy admitted being at the George's home the night Winston George was murdered, but says he didn't take part in the killing. Under a plea agreement,  prosecutors dropped the murder.
