Soering once again asks for pardon

(by News Staff, CBS19, April 30, 2018, Link)


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Monday marks the 32 years since Jens Soering was arrested in England for a crime in Virginia he says he did not commit.

He was arrested in 1986 for the murders of Derek and Nancy Haysom, the parents of his then-girlfriend, in Bedford County.

Soering initially confessed to the crime but later recanted, saying he had confessed to protect Elizabeth Haysom, who was also convicted on charges in connection with the case.

Since then, he has maintained the confession was false.

Several experts have come forward in recent years questioning the conviction.

In February, Soering's 13th appeal for parole was denied.

Now his attorney is renewing an effort to get a pardon from the governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam.
