HOULTON — A sentencing date has been scheduled for a 22-year-old man convicted last month in the stabbing deaths of a 10-year-old boy and two men in northern Maine.

Thayne Ormsby is scheduled to be sentenced June 7 in Aroostook County Superior Court in Houlton.

That’s the same court where Ormsby was convicted of three counts of murder in the 2010 stabbing deaths of 55-year-old Jeffrey Ryan, his 10-year-old son, Jesse, and family friend Jason Dehahn at Ryan’s home in the small town of Amity. The jury rejected Ormsby’s insanity defense.

Ormsby faces 25 years to life on each charge. Prosecutors have indicated they’ll ask the judge to sentence Ormsby to life in prison.
