BOAZ, AL (WAFF) -

Boaz city leaders will support a family who wants to keep a convicted murderer in prison.

Douglas Barron killed his wife, Sheila Barron, in May 1989. Sheila was the sister of Council member Jerry Battles. Barron was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

A parole hearing for Barron is scheduled for June 25. The Boaz City Council passed a resolution Monday to support the family of Sheila Barron as they seek to prevent the parole and release of Douglas.
