WARREN - A convicted rapist, who already violated his parole once in 2009 when he stalked a Dollar General Store cashier and pulled a knife on her boss, is seeking a second release from prison in December.
Terrance Stargell had already served 22 years behind bars before the first release.
The 45-year-old inmate at Chillicothe Correctional Institution was only 18 years old when he was sentenced to serve 15-to-70 years after prosecutors say he committed a violent rape on a 62-year-old disabled Warren woman in her own home on New Year's day 1987.
Stargell killed the woman's dog, ''Boo,'' with a knife then repeatedly raped the woman whom he bound and gagged before clearing out her home, removing two TVs, clock radio, four table lamps, sweeper, iron, jewelry, purses, personal medication, identification and money.
Stargell entered the home with a female accomplice, who had used the phone inside the woman's house earlier. She eventually testified against Stargell in front of a jury.
After the first stint behind bars, it was less than a year before his parole was revoked after stalking a female who worked at a Dollar General in Campbell. He repeatedly engaged in sexually provocative conversation with the woman who rebuffed his advances. When the male co-worker attempted to intervene on her behalf, Stargell pulled a knife.
Stargell's parole officer told the female she was being primed to become the next victim.
Trumbull County Prosecutor Dennis Watkins and his chief appellate assistant LuWayne Annos say the latest female victim fears for herself and her family if Stargell is released again.
''Now looking at him getting out, I'm terrified that he was in just long enough to make him mad. I think it would only be a matter of time before he found me if he were released. He was doing research somewhere to know my city and that I have children and who knows what else. He knows my face'' the latest victim wrote in a previous letter to the Ohio Parole Board.
Watkins calls Stargell ''pure evil'' and ''devoid of a moral compass.''
The prosecutor tells the Parole Board in his latest letter that he's convinced Stargell is sure to re-offend if he is released.
''Enough is enough! Stargell hasn't gotten the message. He has worked his way up from being a bad boy to a full-fledged psychopath and he is not going to get any better,'' Watkins said in a letter this week.
To support his point, Watkins sent parole board members copies of Stargell's long juvenile record dating back to 1982 that includes an incident when he pointed a loaded gun at small children when he was 14-years old. The juvenile record also includes a permanent commitment to the Ohio Department of Youth Services.
Watkins also sent the board a list of at least 60 times that Stargell was written up for various conduct violations in prison before he was released the first time in 2009. He points out that the violations have continued since his return to prison.
