ALFRED, Maine — A Maine prosecutor is recommending a 45-year prison sentence for a New Hampshire man convicted of killing his former fiancee.

Jason Twardus of Rochester, N.H., was convicted last year of strangling 30-year-old nursing student Kelly Gorham in 2007 and burying her body on his father’s land in Stewartstown, N.H.

Twardus is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. Deputy Attorney General William Stokes tells the Journal Tribune that Twardus never showed any remorse. He says Twardus was willing to let Gorham’s family suffer the pain of not knowing what happened to her.

Twardus lost his bid for new trial last month.
