Judge: Killer to stay in prison

A man sentenced to life in prison for killing a Greenwood woman in the 1970s will not be released early or moved to a different prison.

A Jefferson County judge denied a request from Raymond Lamb, 67, for a sentence modification. Lamb was convicted in September 1974 of shooting and killing Kathryn “Kitty” Kaufman while she was at work in a Greenwood laundromat. He was sentenced to life in prison for the murder.

Kaufman was shot four times in the parking lot of Sanders’ Cleaners and Laundry in Greenwood, where she worked, on Feb. 13, 1973.
