NH court refuses to suspend remainder of convicted killer's sentence
A convicted killer will remain behind bars after the court struck down a motion to suspend the remainder of his sentence.
Eric Windhurst was 17 when he shot and killed his friend's step father, Danny Paquette - who was allegedly abusing the teen, Windhurst's friend.
The case remained unsolved until 2005 when the girl, Melanie Cooper, came clean about the murder.
Windhurst pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 15 to 36 years.
He recently asked the court to suspend the remainder of his sentence.
The court refused the motion.
