One of Bend's most notorious killers was back in front of the parole board this week, as he is every other year. But this time his hearing was postponed for several months. Jeffrey Spoonire is called the "thrill killer" because he shot a total stranger, a popular St. Charles nurse as she was out walking on a trail near her Bend home. The murder happened almost 30 years ago, in 1982, and the family continues to fight to keep Jeffrey Spoonire locked up. St. Charles nurse Mary Ann Thomas Hosier was out walking on her usual trail on Century Drive when she was killed. The victims’ mother says Spoonire was out shooting squirrels when Hosier walked by and he thought it would be excited to see what happened if you shot a person.  That's why he was dubbed the "thrill killer”. Deschutes County D.A. Patrick Flaherty is petitioning against Spoonire's release, and says when the Parole Board meets again he's going to ask the Board not to review it for 10 years rather then the current every other year schedule. Wednesday's hearing was postpone because Spoonire is set to have a psychiatric evaluation within the next 3 months, after that a new parole hearing date will be set.
