Christiana Fesmire

LEWISTON, Maine — Authorities confirmed that remains recovered last week in woods in Lisbon are those of Christiana Fesmire, 22, of Lewiston who went missing on July 1, 2011.

The Office of the State of Maine Chief Medical Examiner said Tuesday that DNA taken from the remains and examined at the Maine Crime Lab matched that of Fesmire. The cause and manner of death were “homicidal violence with facial fractures,” said Mark Belserene, a spokesman at that office.

Buddy Robinson, 31, of Lewiston was convicted on a count of murder following a two-week trial last month in connection with Fesmire’s death.

He has not been sentenced.
