On This Date in Minnesota History: June 21

June 21, 2010 – Convicted murderer David [Francis] Hoffman was denied parole [on this date for the third time] and must serve at least six more years in prison for strangling and dismembering his wife almost 30 years ago in western Hennepin County.

Hoffman, now 63, was convicted in 1981 of killing his wife, Carol Stebbins Hoffman, in their home in Corcoran [on August 10, 1980]. He tried to dispose of her body in a garbage disposal and later threw the remains [in two black garbage bags] in nearby Weaver Lake.”

“The state Department of Corrections, in denying his parole request, [noted his lack of remorse and] ruled Hoffman must serve at least six more years before he is eligible to reapply for parole.”1
