Husband, Son of Binghamton Murder Victim Fight Parole
The husband and son of a Binghamton woman killed while working at a city convenience store are speaking out against possible parole for a man convicted of murder in her death.
A parole hearing for 68-year-old Thomas Marlowe is to be held next Monday. Marlowe is serving a prison sentence for murder, robbery and perjury.
Marlowe was the getaway driver after 22-year-old Christine Kamide was shot twice in the head during a heist at a Robinson Street store in September 1982.
Marlowe also drove a getaway vehicle following the killing of an Afton store clerk five days earlier.
Paul Kamide continues his effort to fight parole for Marlowe. His son, Paul Kamide Jr., was only three months old when his mother was killed while she was at work.
Father and son have given statements to the parole board urging that Marlowe be kept in prison.
They're asking people who feel the same way to express their views to the parole board.
Letters to the parole board may be submitted online using this link. Marlowe's inmate information is DIN 83C0834. He is being held at Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Washington County.
Herman Neu was the shooter in both convenience store killings. He's now 64 years old and serving time in Mohawk Correctional Facility in Oneida County. Neu will be eligible for parole in 2033.
