Thomas Marlowe, who is serving a state prison term for murder in the shooting death of a Binghamton convenience store clerk, has failed in his eighth bid for parole.

The New York State Board of Parole has rejected the 70-year-old Marlowe's parole request.

Marlowe was one of two men convicted of murder in connection with the 1982 killing of 22-year-old Christine Kamide during a robbery at J&J Stop 'N Shop on Robinson Street.

Kamide was shot to death five days after 19-year-old James Wilcox was killed during a heist at an Afton convenience store.

Marlowe's latest parole hearing was held June 8. Paul Kamide, whose wife died after being shot in the Binghamton robbery, has been informed that Marlowe's parole bid has been turned down.

Marlowe is being held at the Elmira Correctional Facility. According to the state corrections website, his next parole hearing could be held in June 2022.

Marlowe was the getaway driver in both convenience store robberies. He is serving a sentence of 23 years to life for murder, robbery and perjury convictions.

Herman Neu, the triggerman in the killings, is being held at Mohawk Correctional Facility in Rome. Neu is serving a 52-year to life term for murder and robbery convictions. He will be eligible for a parole hearing in October 2032.
