FOLLY BEACH, SC - Richard Valenti, a former sailor at the Charleston Naval Base, convicted of killing two teens in 1973 has been denied parole for the 18th time.

Valenti is serving two life sentences at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville for hanging two teenage girls in 1973 and watching them die at his Folly Beach home.

Valenti's 1974 trial lasted four days; the jury took less than an hour to find Valenti guilty on both counts of murder. He was given two life sentences to be served consecutively.

Two dogwood trees were planted at the James Island Harbor View Elementary School as a memorial to Alexis Ann Latimer and Sherri Jan Clark. The trees still bloom each spring.
