(WAFF) - Convicted murder Judith Ann Neelley has not waived her right to a parole hearing according to a letter from the State Parole Board.
Now the State of Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles says that has not happened and that Neelley's hearing is still set for later this month.
The Board has issued the following statement:
In 1983, Neelley was sentenced to death for the rape and slaying of a 13-year-old Georgia girl, but her sentenced was commuted to life in prison by Governor Fob James in 1999.
