Prosecutor's Office argues against release of convicted Hubbard murderer
The Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office is arguing against the potential release of a man convicted of aggravated murder.
Alfonsia "Mickey" Perry is scheduled for a parole hearing in May.
Perry has been in prison since November 1994 after being convicted on charges of aggravated murder, felonious assault and inciting violence stemming from the murder of 34-year-old Jeanette Purdue.
Purdue was killed on November 16, 1993, at a home on Rosser Avenue in Hubbard. According to the letter from Trumbull County Prosecutor Dennis Watkins, Perry called Hubbard Township Police that night saying he thought he killed his girlfriend.
Perry hit Purdue more than 70 times with wooden bed slats and an axe handle in front of her eight and six-year-old children. Testimony from the children revealed that Perry made Purdue take off her clothes while he beat her until the stick broke.
Watkins says Perry's profile "could make him the poster person for domestic violence."
During Perry's time in jail, he assaulted three corrections officers at the Trumbull County Jail. Watkins also noted Perry's history of drug abuse as another reason to keep him locked up.
The letter says Perry has demonstrated repeated bad behaviors during his time in prison and suffers from psychological disorders.
The Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office previously opposed his parole in 2007 and 2013.
