The next parole hearing for convicted murderer Guy Gregory Wilkinson will be in 2012, according to a spokesman with the Maryland Parole Commission.

Now 38, the former Hagerstown man had his second parole hearing Sept. 27 at the Eastern Correctional Institution in Westover, Md., where he is serving a life sentence for the 1983 murder of Doris Ruthrauff.

The 61-year-old woman, who taught Sunday school and belonged to a bird-watching society, was beaten and stabbed 17 times in her Sharpsburg Pike home on Oct. 13, 1983.

Doris Ruthrauff had six children, several of whom attended the parole hearing at ECI. Contacted after the hearing, the family declined to comment.

Wilkinson had a previous parole hearing in 1995, his first since his conviction in Washington County Circuit Court in 1984.
