Debi Freeman

Board denies parole for Jenkins

The Mississippi Parole Board denied parole for Anthony Jenkins, 45, who convicted in 1987 for killing 4-year-old James Neal Freeman and wounding Debi Freeman in 1985 with a rifle while the family was driving along College Hill Road.

Jenkins was sentenced to life in prison and has been up for parole three times but has been denied each time. The latest hearing was held in January. He will be eligible again in 2014. (January 31, 2011, Page 2)
