Man gets more than 50 years in prison for raping, killing former classmate

A man who was captured on video hauling the lifeless body of a former high school classmate into the woods was sentenced to 58 years in prison on Wednesday for raping and killing her.Jalique Keene was seen on surveillance video carrying the woman over his shoulder as she kicked her legs and then later carrying her limp body into the woods, where she was found last year.

The 22-year-old Keene was convicted of murder and gross sexual assault in May.Keene and 19-year-old Mikaela Conley knew each other from Mount Desert Island High School.

Jalique Keene has broken our family,” Conley’s mother, Danielle Timoney, said.An autopsy showed Conley died from blunt force trauma to her head and strangulation.

On the other side of the courtroom, a smaller group of Keene’s family and friends wore black T-shirts with a photo of Keene and “We all love you” in large letters.Barbara Keene, Jalique Keene’s adoptive mother, said Conley’s death was a tragedy, “amplified by the fact that it came at the hands of a close friend she had trusted.” But, she added, the crime “is not the sum total of who he (Keene) is.”
