DA: Poughkeepsie Killer Is Still Danger To Family, Society

"These postings and messages are alarming for several reasons, not the least of which are statements attributed to Mr. Britton directed at his sister saying, 'You should've played nice,' that she is 'complicit in the cycle of hurt' because she will not forgive him; and a claim in Facebook posts that his sister participated in part of these heinous crimes," Weishaupt wrote in his letter. "These statements clearly demonstrate that Mr. Britton still refuses to acknowledge responsibility for his actions."

"The evidence submitted demonstrates that Mr. Britton remains a danger to the only surviving victim and his release would be incompatible with the welfare of society," Weishaupt told Hudson Valley Post in an email. "We urge the Board of Parole in the strongest possible terms to deny parole for Mr. Britton. We are confident after serving Mr. Britton with the evidence and after a full and thorough review is conducted his parole will be denied."
