Alfred Brissette granted parole decades early
...
The former wife of Alfred Brissette - who asked that she not be identified - said she had a "visceral reaction" when she learned he was getting out after.
"I wanted to run away. I was shaking and crying and could not stop for six hours," she said in a telephone interview. "I was having nightmares about it because of the fear about him finding me or my family."
Brissette and his co-conspirator, Marc Girard, were convicted in the 1999 killing of Jeannette Descoteaux, 38, of Woonsocket.
...
Court records show the pair had discussed killing a woman "at random" for months prior and Brissette even purchased a shovel with plans to dig a grave for the victim.
Brissette pleaded guilty to murder charges and was sentenced to 60 years, with 35 to serve in prison. R.I. Department of Corrections records indicate Brissette earned more than 1,600 days of "good time" and this month the R.I. Parole Board voted to release him in December.
...
The woman married Brissette when she was 18 years old; he was 19. They had been divorced for about five years when the crime took place, she said.
"I met him at a coffee shop," she said. "It was a meeting that should never have happened."
"Thrill Kill"
Court documents detailing the 1999 homicide say Marc Girard met Descoteaux at a party and convinced her to drive with him and Brissette to the woods in Burrillville by promising her drugs.
...
Brissette and Descoteaux had sex in a car at George Washington Park while Girard waited outside the vehicle, according to police.
...
"After that, Brissette reached into the back of the Blazer for a plastic bag containing a lug wrench and smashed it into Jeanette's head," court records say.
...
"Jeanette was stunned and asked Brissette what he was doing, to which he responded by again striking her head with the lug wrench."
...
The victim screamed, begging Brissette to stop, at which time Girard returned, according to police records quoted in the court documents.
...
"In the meantime, Brissette, who had been rummaging about in the Blazer, reappeared and handed the shovel to Girard and directed him to dig a hole," court documents state.
...
In response to a request from Target 12, the board refused to provide information about where Brissette will live and whether he will work or attend school once he gets released.
The board's website says its "records are exempt from public disclosure since these records contain personal or medical information relating to an individual."
Records indicate the board voted to release Brissette during a June 2012 meeting, then revisited his case in November and voted to release him in December.
In a statement, the parole board said Brissette had never been disciplined in his 14 years at the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston.

...
CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) - Convicted so-called "thrill" killer Alfred Brissette will likely be released from prison without serving his full 35-year sentence. The main question now is how soon he'll get out.
The Rhode Island Parole Board met Wednesday and once again revisited Brissette's case after an undisclosed detail in his plan for release fell through last month. Brissette was granted parole last year but his plan for life on the outside disintegrated after Target 12 ran a series of reports about his pending release.
...
The parole board remains tight-lipped about their meetings with Brissette and its chairman declined to be interviewed regarding the case.
Inmates seeking parole must present the board with details describing where they will live and work - or go to school - if they are released. The board also considers several factors including the crime itself and the inmate's disciplinary record in prison.
In 2004 Brissette pleaded no contest to murder charges for his role in the 1999 beating death of 38-year old Jeanette Descoteaux of Woonsocket.
...
Brissette was granted parole in June and he earned more than 1,600 days of "good time" credit, which would have moved his release date up to 2028 if he had not secured parole, according to the R.I. Department of Corrections.
...
The parole board met with Brissette inside the medium security facility at the Adult Correctional Facility where he is being housed. The meeting was closed to the media as well as friends and family of the victim.
...
According to court documents, Brissette and Girard "had conspired to kill and bury a random female victim" 18 months prior to the murder, even going so far as to purchase a shovel with the intent of digging a grave.
...
Brissette then demanded Descoteaux have sex with him in exchange for cocaine.
