Parole denied for convicted killer who bit off girlfriend’s finger
March 06, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A 55-year-old man convicted in San Mateo County Superior Court of murdering one girlfriend and biting off the finger of another more than 20 years ago was found unsuitable for parole Tuesday.

Jose Antonio Erazo, who in the 1980s bit off the finger of his girlfriend during an argument and then in the 1990s fatally stabbed and strangled another girlfriend, will not be eligible for another parole hearing for five years, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

“He remains a complete danger to the community,” Wagstaffe said.

On Feb. 27, 1991, Erazo pleaded no contest to second-degree murder with a knife enhancement and was sentenced two months later to 19 years to life in prison, according to Wagstaffe.

Erazo had already served a short prison sentence for the 1988 assault of his then-girlfriend for an attack that included biting off her finger, Wagstaffe said.

Erazo’s last parole hearing was in 2009, when he was also denied parole for five years.
