MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Board of Parole has denied early release for a Collierville man convicted of trying to kill his wife three separate times.
Part of Wortman’s plea deal was serving 30-percent of his sentence, or nine years. Good behavior brought him before the parole board early.
Jones testified before the board at Wortman’s hearing, saying she still believes “Fred Wortman wants to eliminate me.”
Wortman’s next chance at parole is in seven years when he appears before the parole board in September 2026.
