Maine family rebuilds lives after brutal attack

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — William Guerrette Jr. and his 11-year-old daughter Nicole are getting on with their lives six months after they were attacked with a machete during an early morning home invasion in Pittston.

Back home after long hospital stays, the former legislator started a coin business a month ago and Nicole has returned to school.

Said Guerrette: “We’re not back to normal, but we’re getting better.”

Family members had considered moving out-of-state, but recognized that they have roots in central Maine and that their safety could not be guaranteed however far away they went.

Two foster brothers who were living in Augusta are in custody on a range of charges, including aggravated attempted murder.
