Dingman granted conditional parole
Jeffrey A. Dingman
Jeffrey Dingman, right, leaves a parole board meeting at the State Prison Thursday. Dingman was barely 14 when he and his older brother, Robert, shot their parents to death as they arrived home from work on Feb. 9, 1996, a Friday afternoon. The parole board said they were worried that he lacks the life skills to succeed in society but granted him parole if he completes counseling and learns the skills he'll need to return to society.

Dingman has been working in Manchester since July 25 while living at the Calumet halfway house on Lowell Street, state corrections department spokesman Jeffrey Lyons said.
Jeffrey testified he shot his mother "two or three times" when she came home from work, but turned his head away when his brother stood over her and fired a final round into her head, saying "Die bitch," as she tried to crawl away.
Jeffrey Dingman and his attorney, Mark Stevens of Salem, will present their case for parole before the three-member parole board chaired by former House Speaker Donna Sytek. Mark E. Furlone, a retired New Hampshire State Police trooper, and Derry lawyer M. Kathryn McCarroll also will preside.
The staff's evaluation package recommends Dingman be paroled, she said.
The parole board also will want to ensure a "suitable parole plan" is in place and will listen to testimony and statements given by those representing the victims and those advocating for Dingman, Goldberg said.
He returned to New Hampshire in Oct. 22, 2011, where he was incarcerated at the state prison in Concord, then transferred to the minimum security facility on state prison grounds Jan. 16, before coming to Manchester in July.
