Parole Denied For Killer
Parole denied. That's the word from a state review board today in the case of 63 year old Bonita Smith. She's in prison for killing a 76 year old grocery store worker in Richland County back in 1982.
Smith, along with James Wilson both received life sentences plus 20 years for the killing of Leona Milfred during a robbery. She will now stay locked up in a minimum security prison for at least another year.
One of the people telling the review board to keep Smith locked up, was the victim's 71 year old son, Terry. He says that Smith never took responsibility for the thrill seeking killing and accused Smith of telling conflicting stories to avoid getting busted.
