DENVER (AP) - Actor Kelsey Grammer says he forgives the man who raped and killed his sister in Colorado Springs nearly 40 years ago but doesn't want him to be paroled.
Grammer testified by video Tuesday at the parole board hearing for Freddie Glenn, who is serving a life sentence at the Buena Vista Correctional Facility. He was convicted of killing Karen Elisa Grammer after kidnapping her from a Colorado Springs Red Lobster restaurant where she worked in 1975. He was also convicted of killing men.
The Denver Post reports that Glenn was tearful at times as he apologized. He was 18 at the time and said he thinks he deserves a second chance.
Grammer said he accepted Glenn's apology but said endorsing his release would be "a betrayal of my sister's life."
