James Murray is incarcerated at KIA prison on Aruba. He was transferred here a few years ago out of Curacao after he could no longer be kept there. Murray kidnapped and murdered a kindergartner 33 years ago on that island, after her aunt told him she no longer wished to continue in a relationship with him. The judges announced their decision Friday morning, after they had heard Murray and an extensive psychological evaluation had taken place.
