Parole Hearing Petition

A Henry County woman is protesting the possible parole of the man who helped kill her mother.

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.

A jury there convicted Grimsley only of first-degree robbery and he was sentenced to life in prison.

Grimsley goes before the state parole board next month and he could be set free. But Ella Riley’s daughter says Grimsley belongs in prison.

Because of her mother's death, Mrs. Jones has become an advocate with a group called "VOCAL"...or Victims Of Crime And Leniency. She’s circulating a petition in an effort to keep Grimsley behind bars.
