Kelsey Grammer Clarifies Forgiving Sister's Killer, "the Worst in the History of Colorado"

Last month, actor Kelsey Grammer made international headlines when he said he forgave Freddie Glenn, the killer of his sister, during testimony at a parole hearing.

Grammer spoke about these remarks for the first time in an unusual setting: an appearance on Access Hollywood to hype Partners, a new FX comedy with Martin Lawrence, who was also present, and the action-adventure flick The Expendables 3. And while he didn't quite retract his forgiveness, he seemed frustrated that Glenn escaped death row and called the killings "the worst in the history of Colorado." Get details and see the video below.
