Board Rejects Parole For Man Convicted In Gruesome Murder Case

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections

A Milford man who nearly 40 years ago killed his roommate and ate part of his brain will not be granted parole. The Ohio Parole Board has ruled against releasing 60-year-old David Chapin, who is serving a life prison sentence for killing his 23-year-old friend Donald Liming in October 1978 in a dispute over religion. Chapin has been denied parole at least four previous times and will be eligible again in 2018.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
