Parole denied again for woman who killed two kids in DUI crash
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A parole board has denied a Memphis woman’s parole quest, 12 years after she hit and killed two middle school students and seriously hurt a third.
Christina Morgan was drunk when she drove up on a sidewalk and hit the Southwind Middle School students, killing Edgar Akpotu and Malcolm Williams.
Last month, she asked a parole board to be let out of prison early.
In 2003, Morgan was sentenced to 22 years in prison after she made a plea bargain.
When asked to speak at the hearing, Christina Morgan said, “I want to apologize for my actions. When I was younger I lived a reckless lifestyle however throughout the years I’ve changed.”
Morgan’s friends spoke on her behalf saying prison was wearing on her mentally and she’d have a home and people to watch over her if she’s released.
This is the third time Morgan has been denied parole.
Deborah Jenkins, mother of Malcolm Williams, said she has had it with Morgan asking for parole, “Every time I come to the parole hearing I expect to see some remorse from Christina Morgan and each time she doesn’t know my son’s name and she killed my son.”
Morgan can seek parole again in two years.
