Judge rules Darnell Huntley can go before state parole board; he also apologizes to victim’s daughter for murder
Darnell Huntley of Abbeville had a good day on Jan. 31, 2019.
In a matter of 10 minutes, Huntley received forgiveness from the daughter of the lady he murdered in 1980, and he also learned he would go before the State Parole Board in hopes of one day getting out of jail.
Huntley, who murdered a 66-year-old Abbeville woman during an armed robbery in 1980, attended his resentencing hearing Thursday in the Vermilion Parish Courthouse.
Judge Jules Edwards ruled Huntley, who has been in prison since 1980, gets to have a parole hearing shortly.
