PORTLAND — The Oregon Board of Parole has denied parole for a man who killed his wife and two young children 25 years ago.
Now 58 years old, Yoshio Morimoto, recounted the crime in his September appearance before the Oregon Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision.
The Oregonian reports the board decided last week to keep him in prison. He can request another review in two years.
Morimoto admitted beating his wife with a tire wrench and strangling his daughters who were 3 years and 9 months old. He dreamed of being with another woman.
Morimoto pleaded guilty to murder charges in Washington County and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Parole board members say his admission showed shame but not remorse.
