NH widower of victim will oppose parole for Savoy, serving 5-12 years for hiding evidence
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' A New Hampshire man whose wife was hacked to death by machete-wielding home invaders in 2009 will testify against paroling the man who helped the killers hide evidence.
A victim advocate says David Cates will attend Thursday's hearing for 22-year-old Autumn Savoy.
Savoy admitted helping convicted killers Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble dump bloody clothing in the Nashua River on Oct. 4, 2009' just hours after Kimberly Cates was hacked to death and 11-year-old Jaimie Cates was maimed at their Mont Vernon home. David Cates was traveling on business.
Savoy pleaded guilty to conspiracy and hindering apprehension and was sentenced last April to five to 12 years in prison. He received credit for the 526 days he spent behind bars prior to sentencing, which hastened his parole eligibility.
