Berea family meets with parole board to keep killer in prison
BEREA, OH (WOIO) - The family of a Berea girl killed in 1986 will meet with the parole board Friday to keep her killer behind bars.
Warren Paxton Brown has been in prison more than twice as long as Robyn Star Field was on this earth. Brown, 15 at the time, was convicted of murdering the 13-year-old in his family's Wallace Drive home in Berea. For the third time he's up for parole. Field's family is desperate to prevent his release.
He has served 28 years of his 20 year to life sentence and his parole hearing is scheduled for Feb. 6.
Robyn's brother, Rick Schultz, says Brown has never shown sincere remorse for the premeditated murder. He's also scared for his family's safety should Brown go free, because of multiple threats from Brown's associates.
He is pleading to the public to sign a petition or write a letter to the parole board urging them to keep Brown behind bars, citing alarming crime statistics.
"The younger the offender, the younger the victim, the more likely he is to reoffend, and do it more horrifically than the original crime," he claims.
