PAGE FOURTEEN SHAMOKIN NEWS-DISPATCH, SHAMOKIN, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 1958 Convicted Killer Asks Release From Life Term HARRISBURG UPI -Robert Corbin, York, who has served eight years of a life term for the hold-up killing of a 62-year-old woman, is seeking his freedom with the help of affidavits contending he could not have com mitted the murder. A cousin of Corbin's Jacqueline Babner, offered a series of five affidavits to the state Pardons Board, in four of which the mak ers swore Corbin had been in the Sechrist Cafe at York the entire evening of April 14, 1950, when the slaying was committed. The fifth affidavit presented to the board purported to show that Corbin's accomplice in the crime, Genevieve Heistand. swore she would involve him in it while she was awaiting trial. "If you go to jail for something you've done, you are paying for j it. Miss Babner told tne ooara. "If it's for something you haven't done, that's another thing." The affidavits testifying that Corbin spent the entire night in the bar were submitted by Jacob H. Hoffman, owner of the tav ern; Betty J. Wolfe, Skyler Dod son and one was signed by Ger trude W. Slyden. Raymond C. Wieseckel, state carole director, told the board that he understood both the iudae who sentenced Corbin and the former district attorney of York County were opposed to the pardon application. He said that with one exception when Corbin was involved in a fight, his record in prison has been good.
