Neighbor of murdered Hanover couple: Keep killer Tulloch in prison

The new hearings don't necessarily mean the sentence will change for Tulloch, as well as three other convicted murderers — Robert Dingman, Eduardo Lopez Jr., and Michael Soto. All were 17 at the time they committed the murders.
Strelzin said an important issue is whether the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Miller case is retroactive, meaning whether it applies to previous, settled cases. Some courts have said it does, others have said it doesn't.
Moran said the Zantop murder was grisly and the only satisfaction was the apprehension of Tulloch and James Parker, 16. Parker pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, testified against Tulloch and is eligible for parole in 2026.
"Those are the rules of the game, and that's what we have to deal with," he said.
McCollum said Susanne Zantop was liberal-minded and involved with Amnesty International. Neither of the two would have favored the death penalty, she said.
"I don't know what prison would accomplish for him," she said. "It would accomplish protection for the rest of us."Dingman was convicted in 1997 after a jury found him guilty of acting in concert with his younger brother in the murder of their parents.
