Woman eligible for parole, 35 years after husbands death

Updated:

VERNON TOWNSHIP, Ohio- A woman accused of murdering her husband in Trumbull County more than three decades ago is now eligible for parole.

Thirty-five years ago, Angela Morris of Sharon, Pennsylvania was away at college when her father appeared to have died in a house fire.

"He was fun to be around. Ee was creative, he didn't just stay on one thing he would go to another," Morris recals. "I think I'm missing out on a lot."

Morris says the details of her father's death never did add up. Investigators reopened the case 15 years later, discovering he was stabbed at least seven times, and the fire was set as a cover up.

The person convicted of the crime was Morris' step-mother, Judith Morris Delgros. A woman Morris says dabbled in witchcraft, which is why she believes her father's ear was cut off that night and found outside.

"The detective told me that it was for a spell to cast silence and I thought, wow that worked very well' because my brother was right next store, and my cousins and they didn't hear any of it," Morris said.

Now, after serving 20 years in prison, Delgros is eligible for parole and will go before a board at the beginning of next month.

"I feel she has no remorse. She never did and I don't think she does now," Morris said.

Today the remains of Morris's father are kept at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Donated to the institution after Delgros' conviction, they have been used for teaching purposes.

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Residents of a small Canadian island are being warned not to drink their well water because of potentially toxic algae in Lake Erie.

Health officials say people who live on Canada's Pelee Island should stop bathing and cooking with the water from their private wells that draw Lake Erie. The Windsor-Essex Cou...More >>
