While in jail, De Luca attempted to have these witnesses killed by a cellmate, but another inmate thwarted the plan by telling the police.
The jury convicted Patricia Columbo and Frank De Luca, and they were each sentenced to 200 to 300 years in prison.
The two board members who voted for (Columbo's) release noted her good institutional record, and that she teaches arts and crafts, she had been doing social work and helping out other inmates, Tupy said.
There was also a letter from Columbo's cousin in support of her release, Tupy said.
However, they soon learned that De Luca had left his wife and moved in with their daughter, prompting Columbo's father to beat De Luca severely.
On May 4, 1976, Patricia Columbo, then 19, and Frank De Luca, 39, decided to carry out the plan themselves.
Last week, Rose and the original criminal prosecutor of Columbo's case appeared before the review board to lay out the gory details of the murders, and give personal testimonials for why Columbo should never be set free.As a 16-year-old, Columbo worked in a suburban coffee shop where she met pharmacist Frank De Luca, who managed the pharmacy next door.He soon hired her to work in his store and the two began an unusual sexual relationship; Columbo showed classmates pictures of her having sex with De Luca's dog.It's good news, said Mundelein Police Chief Raymond Rose, who was the Elk Grove Village Police Department's lead investigator of the murders.I feel satisfied that justice continues to be served.
