Grammer Speaks to Sister's Convicted Killer For First Time


Actor Kelsey Grammer appeared at a Colorado parole hearing via video call Tuesday and told Freddie Glenn, the man convicted of killing Grammer's younger sister decades ago, that he's forgiven him.

ABC got its hands on the Colorado Parole Board's audio from Tuesday's hearing. In it, the star of "Cheers" and "Frasier" can be heard addressing Glenn, who's hoping to be released on parole.

"I miss her all the time. I accept that you actually live with remorse every day of your life, but I live with tragedy every day of mine."

Although Grammer forgave Glenn in what was his first time speaking to him, the actor also said: "I cannot give your release my endorsement. To give that a blessing would be a betrayal of my sister's life."

At the hearing, Glenn said he's changed since the 1975 murder.

The Denver Post reports he was 18 years old when he killed Karen Grammer. He also killed two other people in different cases. The widow of one of the men Glenn killed also spoke out Tuesday, saying her life had never been the same since her husband's death.

The testimony came the same day Us Weekly reported 59-year-old Grammer's wife gave birth to a baby boy - his sixth child.

The parole board has not yet decided whether Glenn should be released.
