Also, if it was just shakes, then he really wasn't taking the higher end steroids, which really tells me he is just looking for an excuse, well....go shopping elsewhere because we are all out !

why is this guy even up for parole? To my understanding he not only beat this woman to death, he tortured her. and the attorney, my gosh he need to be locked up with this maniac. bottom line, this guy needs to rot. he had no mercy for this poor woman, why should he be spared. murders kill me playing the victim all the time. and 25 years is not long enough.

Let's listen to his attorney closely. How long does he have to pay? Well how long did this young girl pay? She got a death sentence from this animal of a human being. If he can bring her back to life I say let him go. If he can't he should sit in a jail cell and die there thinking about the sick human being he is. I went out of my way to go down to the Barberton local paper and sign that petition.

His problem is deeper then a bulk shake. Nice try.

Good luck to everyone who is attending the hearing. We are with you in spirit. Keep your strength and remember, that either way, you've had your say. The Parole Board will live with the consequences of their actions.

Please, someone post as soon as there's an idea how the hearing went. Does anyone know how soon the board will make their decision?

I agree. The parole board should take a good look at this man's case. This man has shown good behavior for only 2 years, out of 25. Something is fishy. But whether the parole is granted or not, will not bring back the victim.
I don't think the Beacon had the 2 of 25 thing right.

I totally agree and I must add....To the families of his "future" victim(s) after he is released next year, demand the death penalty and sue all that permitted his release from prison for they knew his track record and they still set him free...free to kill again.

I am sorry that he put his family through this ordeal. I have known his family for over fifty years and feel sorry that they have to deal with this poor excuse for a human being. If he comes back to Ohio several people will be waiting for him. Good luck buddy!
