Parole denied for man who killed Akron college student

The Ohio Adult Parole Board has denied parole to a man sentenced to prison for the 1986 murder of a college student.

Initially, in January, the Parole Board had approved the request for Victor Logan. But the Summit County Prosecutor's Office requested a fully hearing of the board and based on that hearing the parole decision was reversed.

Logan is serving a 30 to 75 year sentence for the murder of Susan Soldierson, 22.

Logan and two accomplices pulled Soldierson into their car during a robbery attempt in a bowling alley parking lot. After ripping her purse from her, they pushed Soldierson from the car. She died of head injuries two days later.

"When Victor Logan was sentenced to prison, the judge said he wanted Logan to serve all 75 years because he would still be a danger to society when released from prison. More than 1,300 people, including former Summit County Prosecutor Lynn Slaby, agreed with the judge and signed an online petition asking that Logan's parole be denied," said Prosecutor Walsh. "More than 25 years after Susan's death, Logan still has a lack of remorse and refuses to take responsibility for his role in her murder."

The Parole Board will consider Logan's parole again in 2017.
