Two Memphis Killers Denied Parole

Posted By on Thu, Sep 13, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Two Memphis convicts were denied parole today at a hearing in Henning, Tennessee.

Alfred Turner was convicted of facilitation to commit felony murder in the Emily Fisher trial in January 2007. With parole denied, he will not be up for another hearing until 2013. Fisher's daughter, Rebecca Fisher, said, "I cannot tell you how relieved I am."

William Groseclose was also denied parole. He is serving a life sentence for hiring two men to kill his wife, Deborah Groseclose, in July 1977. She was raped, stabbed, choked, and left to die in the trunk of a car.

Groseclose was originally sentenced to death and had been on Death Row for nearly 20 years, but had his conviction and sentence overturned in 1995. He, like Fisher, will not be up for parole again for six years.
