Man sentenced to life in prison for 2020 stabbing in Cumberland County

Sean Michael Roberts of Gloucester, Maryland, was sentenced to life in prison for a brutal stabbing in October 2020.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. – A Massachusetts man was sentenced Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for his role in a fatal 2020 stabbing in Carlisle.

Sean Michael Roberts of Gloucester, Massachusetts spent a week with a friend at her home in Carlisle in mid-October 2020.

The jury heard evidence that Roberts called police in the early hours of October 15 to report that he had “stabbed the girl he was staying with.”

Arriving officers arrived at the scene and found the deceased victim with multiple stab wounds. A subsequent investigation revealed that Roberts found a folding pocket knife, opened it, and began repeatedly stabbing the victim in the neck, according to police.

The jury convicted Roberts in less than three hours.

“Today’s sentence provides [the victim’s] family and friends with the only measure of justice the law can offer in this horrific case. Accountability for the unspeakable acts of the defendant and assurances that no other innocent person will fall victim to this defendant,” Assistant District Attorney Kimberly Metzger said.

Roberts was charged with first-degree murder without the possibility of parole.
