Governor Kay Ivey on Monday sent a letter to members of the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles requesting they deny Judith Ann Neelley release on parole.
On Monday Gov. Ivey released this statement:
“Under no circumstances should Judith Ann Neelley be granted parole. Her crimes—against people like Ken Dooley, Linda Adair, Lisa Ann Millican, Janice Chatman, and John Hancock—include acts of unspeakable brutality. Her character includes a disturbing tendency to manipulate others towards her own, violent ends. Indeed, I would not have commuted her death sentence in the first place.”
