Monsters Among Us: Eugene Washington beat Ronnie Robinson to death with a hammer; Sentenced to 16 years to life in prison*

Ronnie Robinson

I could not find anything on this murder, however, it was heinous. Eugene Washington had assaulted his ex-girlfriend, Kimberly Johnson, who filed charges against him. While he was in jail, Gene Washington called and threatened to kill her and her new boyfriend, Ronnie Robinson. The judge, Judge Gilbert Bettman. I do not know if he was aware of the threats or not, however, he released Washington on an OR bond. That very night he went to their home and beat Ronnie to death with a hammer. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Now, the Ohio Parole Board has granted him a parole date of May 29. Prosecuting Attorney Joe Deters is protesting this. So far, I can’t find any updates, but will keep looking. *UPDATE* 5/29/2012 – Eugene Washington’s parole has been stopped. I am not sure what will happen, but I will check on it *UPDATE* 4/2018 – Eugene Washington was denied parole and has a new parole hearing April 2019.

**UPDATE** January 2023: Eugene Washington has a parole hearing next month. If you can send in a letter by mail, email or fax, that would be great. Any help to keep him in prison would be good for the victim’s loved ones and society. I believe he should stay in prison for the rest of his life. He is a danger to Kimberly still. Thank you in advance for any and all help.

I urge everyone to send the Parole Board a letter protesting his release. Maybe if their office is flooded, they will reconsider. Even the prosecutor believes that he is still dangerous, especially to Kimberly Johnson. She should not have to have this fear in her life again. A sample letter is below, under the INMATE INFORMATION that you can use every time he is up for parole.

**Update** 3/8/2023 – He had another parole hearing and was denied parole again. Next parole hearing is set for 12/2026.

Here is a sample letter, one that I personally used.

Alicia Handwerk, Chairperson
Board of Parole Hearings
770 West Broad Street
Columbus, OH 43222

Ms. Alicia Handwerk and Members of the Ohio Board of Parole Hearings:

* * * Confidential * * *
Re: Parole Hearing Planned for Eugene Washington, Inmate # A248619
Please DO NOT grant parole to Eugene Washington, Inmate # A248619. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the projected parole of this convicted murderer.

In November 1990, Washington was facing a domestic violence charge filed by ex-girlfriend, Kimberly Johnson. While in jail, Washington called and threatened to kill both Kimberly and Ronnie. When he went to court, Judge Gilbert Bettman released him on OR bond. That very night Washington went to their home and he beat Ronnie Robinson to death with a hammer.

The heinous nature of the murder of Ronnie Robinson, the multiple crimes committed and his past history of violent crimes should preclude any consideration of parole for Eugene Washington. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For this heinous crime, Washington was sentenced to 16 years to Life in prison but he sentenced the Robinson family and friends to a lifetime of grief and sorrow.

In the interests of justice, public safety, and to lessen the emotional trauma for the victim’s family, please consider giving Washington a three year set off before any future parole reviews.

Thank you for your consideration,
