FOLSOM -- A 1973 Capitola convicted murder-rapist's "untreated predatory nature and sexual deviancy" caused a state board to deny parole this week, according to the Santa Cruz County District Attorney's office.
Santa Cruz Assistant District Attorney Alex Byers argued Tuesday against the release of Wilfried Willie Brown, 57, who killed 79-year-old widow Ida Anderson Stine "in a red haze" of emotion as a 16-year-old peddling soap door to door.
Brown, who was tried as an adult, had been released from the California Youth Authority just six months prior to the murder for the rape of a relative.
Stine reportedly invited Brown into her home for coffee and cookies and the two prayed together. Brown then forced Stine into her bedroom for the assault, according to trial testimony at the time.
"An inexplicable murderous rage over-took Brown," District Attorney Bob Lee said in a release. Brown was apprehended seven days later.
In Brown's 15th hearing, the board denied parole, finding Brown to be an unreasonable risk if released. He will again be eligible for parole in 2019. ------ (c)2014 the Santa Cruz Sentinel (Scotts Valley, Calif.) Visit the Santa Cruz Sentinel (Scotts Valley, Calif.) at www.santacruzsentinel.com
