HUNTINGTON - Matthew Solomon, one of Long Island's most notorious convicted killers, is once again up for parole, but his victim's relatives are determined to make sure that he remains behind bars.
Solomon was convicted of strangling Lisa Solomon, his wife of just eight weeks, back in 1987. Solomon initially told everyone his wife went out for a walk and never returned, but it was later discovered that he had dumped the woman's body on the side of Pulaski Road in Huntington.
Solomon was sentenced to 18 years to life behind bars. Three times since 2005 he has come up for parole, and each time he was denied. Next month, Solomon will appear before a parole board for a fourth time.
Lisa Solomon's mother, Diane Weaver, and other relatives plan to travel to Albany Aug. 26 to urge parole board members to keep Solomon in prison.
Solomon himself will appear before the board in mid-September, and a decision is expected to be reached a few days after that.
