The Kentucky Post reports that "a group of family members" who have had "loved ones murdered" by Marco Allen Chapman are calling on Gov. Steve Beshear to commute Chapman's sentence to life without parole. In a statement delivered to Beshear, the family members ask that the Governor understand that "killing " Chapman will create "another set of surviving family members and friends." The statement also says that Chapman's relatives do not want anyone else "to experience the searing pain and the dark sadness that accompanies the intentional killing of a loved one.” See story here.
