Clark Parole Board Hearing

A convicted killer could soon go free, but the man who put William Clark in prison says he'll try to keep him there.

Clark was convicted of murder in 1996 for the shooting death of 17-year-old Kenneth Martin.

The incident happened at the convenience store where Clark worked.

Clark insisted he did not intend to kill Martin, but only fired a warning shot when the teenager ran after acting suspiciously.

A jury deliberated less than an hour before returning a guilty verdict and Clark got the maximum sentence of life behind bars.

Now, eight years later, the state parole board could set him free.

District Attorney Doug Valeska says he'll be in Montgomery Monday trying to block Clark’s parole. The victim's family is also expected to attend the hearing.
