This Dec. 18, 1984 file photo shows Don Nichols, right, standing with his son, Dan Nichols, left, as they pled not guilty in court in Virginia City, Mont. Standing with them is attorney, Steve Ungar. Nichols, who abducted world-class biathlete Kari Swenson in 1984 to keep as a wife for his son once wrote that blame for the "incident" lies with her and a would-be rescuer he shot and killed. Nichols will likely need to be more contrite in April 2012 when he gets in front of the historically stern Montana Parole Board. (AP Photo/File) less
