RE: Ronald Branham
ID#: A289093

Hearing: October 2017

On December 3, 1993, Michael Grasa was murdered by his wife, Melissa Grasa and her boyfriend, Ronald Branham, while he slept in his own home. After Michael went to sleep, Melissa had Branham go into Michael’s room and bring the crossbow that Melissa had given him money to buy a few days earlier. He shot Michael, while the children were asleep in bedrooms down the hall. After Branham shot Michael, he came to Melissa and told her he didn’t think Michael was dead, so she told him to go back and shoot him again. Melissa waited until 6:00 am and claimed that she just found the body.

Branham was convicted of aggravated murder and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. He will have only served 23 years when he is considered for parole. 

We, the undersigned STRONGLY OPPOSE parole for Ronald Branham. Justice demands he serve the full prison term given to him at the time he was sentenced for this heinous crime.
