DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The Alabama Parole Board is refuting a claim from convicted killer Judith Ann Neelley's attorney that she has waived an upcoming parole hearing.
The family is very frustrated over the uncertainty of the parole hearing. They say this has taken valuable time away from their efforts to lineup protesters for the May 23rd parole hearing.
In 1982, Neelley kidnapped Lisa Ann Millican from Rome, Georgia for her then-husband, Alvin, to rape. The couple brought 13 year old Lisa to the former Five Points Motel in Scottsboro, where they repeatedly raped and tortured the young girl.
They also injected Lisa with Drano numerous times to kill her. After injecting Lisa several times with the drain cleaner, Judith Ann then shot Lisa, and kicked her into a canyon near Fort Payne.
Today we learned from the State Parole Board that Neelley's hearing is still set for May 23rd and that no formal waiver has been filed.
A family member of Lisa Ann Millican spoke about their frustrations with the delays over the last few weeks.
We have reached out to Neelley's attorney but have not received a response.
