Autumn Savoy Granted Parole
(Concord, NH) - One of the men convicted in connection with the 2009 home invasion that claimed the life of a Mont Vernon woman has been granted parole.
Autumn Savoy admitted helping convicted killers Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble dump bloody clothing in the Nashua River on Oct. 4, 2009- hours after Kimberly Cates was hacked to death and 11-year-old Jaimie Cates was attacked at their Mont Vernon home.
The now-25-year-old Savoy pleaded guilty in 2011 to conspiracy and hindering apprehension and was sentenced to five to 12 years in prison.
In 2012, he was paroled on one conviction because he had completed required programs and had no prison violations. Last year, the board said he needed a better post-release plan before getting parole on the second conviction.
The board today granted that parole.
