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.
