BEREA, Ohio -- The killer of a 13-year-old Berea girl has been denied parole again.
A panel Friday denied parole for five more years to Warren Paxton Brown, 44. In 1986, at 15, he was convicted of strangling Robyn Star Field in his bedroom and dumped her body in Mill Stream Reservation.
"We feel great," said Robyn's half-brother, Rick Schultz of Garfield Heights. "We feel the public won't be at risk with him being loose."
Robyn's mother, Nancy Field of Middleburg Heights, said, "He's right where he should be. I know he was young at the time [age 15], but some of the things he did I'd hate to see repeated. I would not want another family to go through this."
After the parole hearing took place at the Southeastern Correctional Institution in Lancaster, Ohio, a report was filed saying, "Inmate Brown's offense is aggravated by the case-specific factors of violence, extreme brutality, age of the victim, and extensive victimization. The inmate has completed relevant programs to address his risk factors for re-offending. However, the serious nature of the crime and the aggravating factors in the offense do outweigh the programming efforts completed by inmate... The release would demean the seriousness of the offense and not further the interest of justice."
On a form reporting the decision, a line was checked that said, "There is substantial reason to believe that due to the serious nature of the crime, the release of the inmate into society would create undue risk to public safety, or... would not further the interest of justice or be consistent with the welfare and security of society."
