Police say suspect in Ky. illegally

A suspect in the murder of Shawn Davis, in which a Northern Kentucky University student faces additional charges, broke his parole agreement from the State of Ohio.
Marion Parker III was arrested on Feb. 5 in Arlington Heights, Ohio, according to a Covington Police Department incident report.

According to the Conditions of Supervision document on Ohio’s Department of Rehabilitation and Correction’s Web site, Parker should have notified his parole officer before leaving Ohio and heading to his apartment on Greenup Street in Covington, Ky.

‘He did not have permission to leave Ohio,’ said Trayce Thalheimer, regional’ administrator for the Adult Parole Authority in the Cincinnati region. ‘He absconded supervision by going over to Kentucky.’

Parker had served a three-year sentence for assaulting a male Aug. 9, 2006, according to the Web site for the ODRC. He was placed on supervision in September of 2008, before being released from prison on Jan. 16.

According to reports, Parker refused to sign his extradition papers to be sent to Kentucky and has to wait up to 90 days to be sent to Kentucky. As far as facing charges in breaking his parole, Thalheimer says that ‘he’ll just have to wait.’

Parker is currently in the Hamilton County Justice Center in Cincinnati.

If he faces the charges in breaking his parole, Parker will have to see what Kentucky will charge him with when he arrives into the state’s custody before going back to Ohio.

‘While he goes through the system, and if he gets released, then he will face Ohio,’ Thalheimer said. ‘However, I feel the charges he will face in Kentucky would be worse than whatever he would face in Ohio.’
