CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire man sentenced to prison for hiding evidence and concocting an alibi for machete-wielding home invaders who killed a woman and maimed her daughter has been denied parole.
Autumn Savoy admitted helping convicted killers Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble dump bloody clothing in the Nashua River on Oct. 4, 2009-- just hours after Kimberly Cates was hacked to death and 11-year-old Jaimie Cates was maimed at their Mont Vernon home.
The 24-year-old Savoy pleaded guilty to conspiracy and hindering apprehension and was sentenced in 2011 to five to 12 years in prison.
The state parole board Thursday felt Savoy needed to prepare a better plan following his release. He would be eligible for another hearing in six to nine months.
