Kelsey Grammer has some powerful words for the man convicted of raping and murdering his 18-year-old sister in 1975.
The actor spoke during a parole meeting Tuesday deciding if his sister's killer would remain behind bars. Present for the hearing via a monitor, Grammer, 59, addressed inmate Freddie Glen, 57, for the first time.
"I accept that you live with remorse," Grammer told Glenn after the latter apologized for the crime and said that he was a changed man. "But I live with tragedy every day."
"I accept your apology. I forgive you," the Frasier star surprisingly added. "However, I cannot give your release my endorsement. To give that a blessing would be a betrayal of my sister's life."
Glenn was convicted of killing Grammer's sister, Karen Elisa Grammer, after he and two accomplices kidnapped her from a Red Lobster restaurant in Colorado Springs where she worked. He is serving a life term at the Buena Vista Correctional Facility.
"I want to believe you have actually changed your life," Grammer told a reportedly tearful Glen. "Things you say, I accept a lot of it … You could not have come to a better person in the world than me to advocate for someone who has made some bad choices.”
