Depraved Culprit Cudgel Sleeping Beauty Dead, Leaves Hammer in Head, At Large – Crime Online
Nicole Sinkule, 23, slept while her boyfriend plotted to kill her. Eric Marum hit her with a claw hammer more than a dozen times. Marum pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 16 years of life imprisonment. In November, two members of the California Board of Parole gave him a parole recommendation.
One member voted against parole. Now Nicole’s parents are asking Gov. Gavin Newsom to deny the recommendation. Newsom has three options. If he does nothing, Marum will be released. If Newson reverses the decision, Marcum will have another hearing in 18 months.
The final option is to refer the decision back to the board for members to change their decision. Meanwhile, the Sinkule family started a petition on Change.org hoping to have the parole recommendation reversed.
