Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners: Deny Parole for inmates NDOC #35477 and #35480

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

On January 6, 1991 my sister Angela Lovinger was murdered by NDOC #35477 Raymond Eugene Stewart and NDOC #35480 Richard Mark Holden. Angie was 18 years young at the time of her death. Her throat was slit and she was stabbed multiple times. Her body was discovered 6 days later in a snowy field north of Sun Valley, NV by off roaders. Stewart and Holden were charged and sentenced. Stewart is up for Parole again in January 2019. The hearing will be held in the fall of 2018. Stewart's previous attempts for parole were denied in October of 2013 and 2016. Holden's first parole hearing will be held in the summer of 2019 for the possibility of parole in January 2020. I have read the full case report and I have become very familiar with the details of her murder. It was horrifying to read and unimaginable that any person could be responsible of committing a crime of this nature. It was a premeditated crime. Their motive was to impress a ‘known’ mafia person and they were looking to be 'made'. And were expecting to be paid $500 for the job. My sister was naive in the fact she had no idea what kind of friends she was hanging out with. Stewart and Holden had offered her a safe place to stay. She had worked with them both and thought they were her friends. Not knowing they were in fact planning to take her life. In the statements I have read, Stewart went willingly with detectives and agreed to make a statement. He lied several times trying to take the focus off himself and place sole blame onto Holden. And then later admitted he was instructed by Holden to go back and make sure my sister was dead. He then stabbed her once in the neck, and once in the back after helping Holden move her body off the road. Stewart stated that Holden was the one who slit Angie's throat and that he stabbed her repeatedly while he waited in the vehicle. They disposed of her belongings, after stealing from her. The weapons and vehicle also belonged to Stewart. They both asked a minor female who ordered the ‘hit’ on Angie to clean up the knives. Then Stewart and Holden went around town boasting about killing her. In the police report there was a list that they had started making of who they were planning on killing next. Mind you they were only 19 and 20 years old when they murdered my sister. I was at the sentencing hearing 27 years ago. I have nightmares remembering that they had no remorse for taking her life. They were looking to be ‘made’. Which I truly feel that they would be willing to kill again. Our family has lived in fear for 27 years not knowing if they would ever be released. It has been a nightmare for us and it has caused us all more pain than anyone can imagine. We miss her every day. And often wonder what life would be like if she was still here. We are truly grateful for all of the law enforcement personnel who worked the case and helped put them behind bars. We have faith in the Justice system that they will not be able to know what freedom feels like ever again. Please sign this petition and help keep these MONSTERS behind bars.
