Sparks Mom Crusades to Keep Daughter's Killer in Jail

By  | 

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Sparks woman who has crusaded for more than two decades to keep her daughter's killer behind bars is pounding the pavement again.

Carol Nicoletti is going door-to-door to gather signatures in support of the presentation she'll make Thursday urging the Nevada Parole Board not to release Simon Macias. It'll mark her seventh appearance before the board.

Macias was the husband of Nicoletti's 19-year-old daughter, Susan, when he stabbed her to death in Henderson in 1992. He was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole as part of a plea deal on a second-degree murder charge.

As a result, Nicoletti sets out to collect signatures every two or three years when his next parole hearing comes up. Her granddaughter has set up a website to gather more.
