CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A man sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison for his role in a home invasion that left a mother dead and her 11-year-old daughter maimed was granted parole Thursday on one of his convictions but still faces at least a decade more behind bars.
Quinn Glover pleaded guilty to burglary, robbery and conspiracy in the 2009 Mont Vernon attacks.
Glover, who was then 17, and three others broke into a house and found Kimberly and Jaimie Cates asleep. Glover testified against two co-defendants who hacked and slashed the victims with a machete and a knife, killing 42-year-old Kimberly Cates and severely injuring Jaimie, who lost a portion of her foot in the attack.
Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble are serving life sentences. William Marks is serving a 30-year sentence on a charge of being an accomplice to first-degree murder.
A fifth man, Autumn Savoy, was released on parole in 2015 on charges stemming from disposing of bloody clothing and developing an alibi for his friends.
The parole board found that Glover, now 25, presented no disciplinary concerns in prison, and they granted him parole on the robbery charge. He’d be eligible for full parole in 2029.
“Not a day goes by, not a moment goes by, that I don’t think about what I’ve done and what the Cateses are going through every moment of the day,” Glover said through an audio link. He is in prison in Vermont.
“I cannot express more how terrible I feel about what I’ve done and how much I try so hard to live every day honoring what I have taken from them and what I need to change in my life,” he said.
A victim’s advocate provided a statement from the Cates family that said, “They experienced, and will continue to experience a lot of pain and suffering because of what’s happened.”
