Parole denied in 1983 killing
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JAN 11, 2012 —
District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced last month that convicted murderer Kevin Bruce was denied parole for a period of three years at California State Prison-Solano in Vacaville, California.
According to the D.A.:
Bruce is serving 15 years to life for second degree murder for the 1983 fatal strangulation of 67 year old Marion Cantor in a West Sacramento motel room. Cantor was lured to a motel in West Sacramento by a female known to both him and Bruce. When Cantor arrived, he was assaulted and robbed. During the attack, Bruce and Keith Chandler used the cord from an electric clock to strangle Cantor to death. Bruce has been in state prison for about 28 years.
After deliberating for about ten minutes, Commissioner Mike Prizmich returned with the panel’s decision. In denying the request by Bruce to be paroled, he noted that Bruce had not done enough to help himself get prepared for a release from prison.
Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Garrett Hamilton attended the hearing on behalf the County of Yolo. Said Hamilton in a press release:
“It is clear that Mr. Bruce is not ready to be out of prison, since he continues to deny any responsibility for the killing and has no meaningful plans for what he would do if he were to be released. Even Mr. Bruce acknowledged that his plans upon release are lacking.”
