Burton sentenced to 55 years

BANGOR - The family and friends of the victim Stephanie Gebo said they have been waiting for this day for two and a half years.

It was an emotional day in court today for both sides of the family.

 

Loved ones of the victim, including her daughter, Sydney and father Vance shared how her death impacted their lives. Many of the family members said they are now experiencing PTSD.

 

Today her accused killer Robert Burton was sentenced to 55 years in jail.

 

Stephanie's father Vance Ginn said "I don't ever think you get full closure in a case like this. We suffered a great loss that we can never get back. We have Christmas season coming up. Which is one of the worst times we have to face, but the sentencing did help with that."

 

While the family was pushing for life in prison, they are content with the judge's ruling.

 

Burton is looking to be released from jail around the age of 86 years old.
