Parole Board Hearing

Prosecutors are trying to block the parole of a Henry County man who helped kill an elderly woman.

Fifty-four-year-old Olin Grimsley and another man were originally charged with capital murder for the 1990 stabbing death of 68-year-old Ella Foy Riley.

Jurors were not able to reach a decision in his first trial, so the case was moved to Montgomery.

Jurors there decided Grimsley was present when the victim was killed but they convicted him only of first-degree robbery and he was sentenced to life in prison.

Grimsley goes before the State Parole Board later today and he could be set free.

District Attorney Doug Valeska says Grimsley belongs in prison.

Valeska will attend Grimsley's parole board hearing and try to convince the board to keep Grimsley behind bars.
