Parole hearing for convicted murderer from NE MI

A convicted murderer from northeast Michigan could be released from prison in the coming weeks after spending approximately 24 years behind bars.

Daniel Teribery is serving a life sentence for second degree murder in the February 1996 killing of 62 year-old James Marshak of Lewiston.

Teribery was 21 years-old at the time of the murder and is now 46. A parole hearing to consider his possible release from prison will be held March 2 at 11 a.m.

Teribery violently stabbed Marshak at least 25 times in a fit of rage. Stab wounds were found in Marshak’s chest, neck and head.

Teribery claims he was solicited by Marshak to perform sexual acts in exchange for receiving free stereo equipment.  On a recording of a police interview, Teribery said the two men were about to engage in a sexual act when he “freaked out,” grabbed his knife and then didn’t remember what happened next.

Teribery was from Vienna Township. The murder occurred at Marshak’s house in Lewiston, where he operated an audio store.

Teribery is being held at Lakeland Correctional Facility in Coldwater. The parole hearing will be held online through Microsoft Teams. Those planning to access the hearing must call 517-335-1736 no later than next Friday, February 26.
