12/11/2012 02:47 PM ET  

The state Medical Examiner's Office says that DNA taken from remains found in a wooded area in Lisbon matched that of Christiana Fesmire, 22, who disappeared in July of last year.

Authorities have confirmed that remains found last week in woods in Lisbon are those of Christiana Fesmire, 22, of Lewiston who disappeared on July 1, 2011.

The state Medical Examiner's Office says that DNA taken from the remains and examined at the Maine Crime Lab matched that of Fesmire, the Lewiston Sun Journal reports.

The cause and manner of death were "homicidal violence with facial fractures," spokesman Mark Belserene told the publication.

Buddy Robinson, 31, of Lewiston, was convicted last month of murder in connection with Fesmire's death, though her body had not yet been found.

Robinson has not been sentenced.
