Convicted killer eligible for parole

FAIRFIELD — A former Fairfield man who shot and killed a close friend in 1985 learned Tuesday afternoon that he has been deemed eligible for parole.

Terrance D. Hunter, 54, has spent nearly 30 years behind bars. He was 25-year-old a former Travis Air Force Base airman living in a Fairfield apartment with his girlfriend when he used a new shotgun to put two slugs into Daryl Moon.

Moon had gone to the apartment with Hunter’s girlfriend, who was getting her belongings because she was moving out after a domestic violence incident. Hunter and the girlfriend exchanged words and Moon intervened, which proved to be a fatal decision. Hunter shot moon Moon once in the hand and then shot him a second time, putting a slug into Moon’s chest, according to court records.

At his jury trial, Hunter claimed he had been defending himself when Moon attacked him and the shotgun had gone off accidentally. The prosecutor pointed out that Hunter would have had to rack a second round into the shotgun barrel to fire a second shot and that the pump action to do so could not be accidental.

A jury found Hunter guilty of second-degree murder and he was sentenced to 17 years to life in prison.

Authorities did not say when Hunter would be released from prison in Soledad and returned to Solano County, where he will be on parole.

    No reason for him to be released or even alive. This "justice" system sickens me.
