R.I. high court upholds murder conviction of parolee

Continue reading below

The Rhode Island Supreme Court upheld Tuesday the murder conviction of a man in a deadly 2007 home invasion while out on parole after decades of incarceration on an earlier murder conviction. The court said the weight of evidence against Alfred ‘‘Freddie’’ Bishop was ‘‘enormous.’’ Bishop was sentenced in Rhode Island Superior Court in 2009 to life without parole for the killing of Gabriel Medeiros. The murder took place less than a year after Bishop was paroled to home confinement after having served 33 years for killing another man in 1973. The Supreme Court’s ruling said the trial judge ‘‘did not abuse his discretion’’ in allowing the jury during the proceedings to hear that Bishop was on parole, agreeing that the information was relevant.
