Olathe A Kansas woman convicted 30 years ago of plotting her stepson’s death will have to wait to find out whether she will be granted parole.
The Kansas parole board decided Tuesday to delay a decision on Sueanne Hobson’s parole until all three board members can review the case. The parole board administrator told The Kansas City Star that it may be several months before a decision is made.
Hobson was convicted 28 years ago of plotting the murder of her 13-year-old stepson. Her 17-year-old son and his 16-year-old friend forced Chris Hobson to dig a grave in a Miami County field in 1980 before shooting him to death.
Hobson, who also said she was innocent, has been turned down for parole eight times since she became eligible in 1989.
