Sign the Petition to

Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts

Virginia Woodward was 87 years old. She was a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and pillar of the community. Christopher Berry broke into her house the night of Dec 26th, helped himself to a piece of Christmas pie and then climbed the stairs to her bedroom where he murdered her.
The heinous manner in which she died still lives in our hearts and our minds. The shock never lessens. The thoughts of her fear, her struggling and dying alone haunts all those who loved her.
We were promised a sentence of life without parole. Christopher Berry is now eligible for parole because of a recent ruling by the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts.
Please help us to keep him behind bars, for having committed this horrific act of violence.
