Convicted murderers reapply for parole

Posted on Sep 03 2019

The CNMI Board of Parole will be determining the parole reapplication of two convicted murders.

The board will be holding a parole hearing tomorrow and Thursday, as they will determine the parole applications of a total of five prisoners.

The Board of Parole will be determining the parole applications of Ezra Deleon Guerrero, George Langu, Laraad Ramangmo, Jesse James Camacho, and Shawn Appleby. The board will also be holding a revocation hearing for Nicholas Cabrera.

The board denied the parole application of Appleby and Camacho in June 2017.

Deleon Guerrero is currently serving a 30-year prison term for killing Jae Soung Shim in May 2009. The victim was repeatedly hit with a tangan-tangan stick to the head numerous times after robbing the victim’s store, New Star Market, in Tanapag.

Langu is currently serving a 10-year prison term for breaking into a house and raping his 16-year-old neighbor.

Ramangmou was arrested with Johnalyn Salas for burglarizing and ransacking an apartment in Navy Hill in May 2017.

Appleby is currently serving a 40-year prison term for killing Byung Ok Suh in November 1996 after robbing the victim’s store, Chalan Market, in San Antonio. Appleby bolted from prison on Oct. 10, 1999, with two other inmates. He was later sentence to a year in prison, on top of his 40-year sentence.

Camacho was the mastermind in the killing of a 13-year-old boy in Dandan in April 1998. He was sentenced in 1999 to 45 years in prison. The victim was stabbed 37 times in his own home as part of initiation rites for membership in the so-called Red Rum Gang. Camacho’s co-defendants, both minors at the time, entered a plea deal with the government and were sentenced to two years each.
