FRANKFORT, Ky.(AP)ó The Kentucky Parole Board has decided to keep a woman at the center of a 1980s slaying case that involved lesbian lovers and a hit man in prison for at least 10 more years.
The full board on Monday deferred 44-year-old Elizabeth Turpinís request for release or an early end to her sentence, citing the seriousness of the crime, the fact that someone died and that it was a violent crime with a deadly weapon. A two-member panel could not reach a decision last week.
Turpin, a co-worker and lover, Karen Brown, and a friend, Keith Bouchard, were convicted in the killing of her husband, 22-year-old Michael Turpin, on Feb. 3, 1986. Police say the women hoped to get $60,000 from life insurance.
The board earlier this month deferred parole for Brown for at least five years, citing similar reasons. Turpin and Brown have been in prison for 25 years.

These 3 cold blooded Killers are right where they need to be: prison. Elizabeth Turpin, Karen Brown, and Keith Bouchard brutally killed 22 year old Michael Turpin. Michael Turpin was a wonderful man who did nothing but help others and try to make the world a better place. He was brutally slayed over an insurance policy - he was needlessly killed over $60,000. These three people, in my opinion, should remain in prison for the rest of their life. Michael Turpin's life was extinguished at only 22 and these 3 continue to life their life. Since these three were allowed to live to see birthday after birthday they should at the very least stay in prison until they take die. These 3 brutal murderers should not walk the street for one day. I hope and pray they are in a cage with chains on the hands and feet until the day they die. They destroyed and killed a wonderful man for their selfish greed. May they live a long, long life and have many, many days to spend in a prison. Hopefully they will be in solitary confinement for the remainder of their life. They pretend to be "reformed" and "sorry". The only thing these 3 self-centered, one-dimensional people are sorry of is one thing: that they got caught. If you remember one thing remember this: These 3 killers should remain in prison for the remainder of their life.

Their not in chains, their not in segregation. Or at least Liz isn't, I'm not sure about the other 2, but until 2 yrs ago Karen wasn't either. Liz is remarried to a very wealthy man, she has everything she could possibly want and need( except freedom, which is the one thing she wants the most) She is in very good shape, she is very educated, I am not a Liz fan, I'm just telling you the facts. I don't believe for one second she is sorry because she doesn't believe she did anything wrong. But if you think she is suffering in prison she isn't. She has a nice home there and treated very well. Take it from me I know first hand
