Man convicted of ’87 murder, mayhem denied parole

The Massachusetts Parole Board denied parole to a ­Beverly man who threatened witnesses and committed several violent crimes while released on bail or parole following his conviction for a 1987 murder, prosecutors said Tuesday.

In its decision last week, the board imposed the maximum five-year review period before Charles Doucette, 53, can apply for parole again. Prosecutors said Doucette had failed to take any responsibility for his crimes or engage in meaningful rehabilitation programs while in prison.
