On Friday’s front page of The Telegram, convicted murderer Stephen Ping has been denied day parole again by the National parole board. Ping was convicted in 1988 and is serving a life sentence for shooting his wife in 1986 at their home in St. John’s. In denying his application, the board pointed out Ping had had day parole revoked on two previous occasions following violations of his parole conditions.
