UTAH STATE PRISON — Michael Patterson, convicted of killing his girlfriend and dumping her body in Spanish Fork Canyon before shooting her roommate, says the victims ' families should just "get over it." The full five- member parole board will vote on what to do with Patterson's sentence.

In his dissent to Cinnamon Brown's release, CYA parole board member Victor Wisehart Jr. acknowledged that while she "has made great progress in her program, her reasons for the well-planned, coldblooded killing of her victim are not to be believed."

But in a decision earlier this month, the Parole Board of Canada agreed to modify that release condition.

That release condition now reads "unless communications are necessary for the purposes of judicial procedures, the exercise of parental rights, mediation sessions or other such requirements, with prior written permission from your parole supervisor."

The board said the changes are necessary because a member of the victim's family who is also in Leopold's close family circle wants to have contact with him. The decision does not identify that family member.

Leopold has multiple convictions for domestic violence, as well as for impaired driving, possessing drugs and threatening people. On one occasion, he tied up a woman with duct tape and threatened to kill himself.
