Rafael Robb will not be getting out of prison next week.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported via its Twitter feed that the State Board of Probation and Parole has reversed its decision to release Robb, who was convicted in the 2006 bludgeoning death of his wife, Ellen, at their Upper Merion home.
Members of Ellen Robb's family met with the chairman of the parole board yesterday. Gary Gregory, Ellen Robb's brother, told WPVI-TV that he learned of the parole board's reversal earlier this morning.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman and State Representative Mike Vereb, who first spoke out against Robb's release last week, have scheduled a press conference for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the District Attorney's offices in Norristown.
