UPDATE: Toms River's Robert Marshall Might Soon Be Free

Marshall, who in 1986 was found guilty for "the county's most notorious murder," could be eligible for parole in December.

Robert Marshall, a Toms River broker whose conviction in connection with his wife's 1984 murder inspired a book and a movie, could be eligible for parole in December of this year. He is presently an inmate of  South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton, Cumberland County.

A trial could take place as soon as August. Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato believes that Marshall should remain in jail, according to The Asbury Park Press

"Parole would not be appropriate for Mr. Marshall at this time," Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office, told the Asbury Park Press

He is responsible for killing his children's mother while they were all pretty young. He deprived the woman of a life after her 30s. Yeah I agree with her that 30 years is hardly enough.
