ROCKFORD (AP) — A man convicted in a 1970 fatal shooting in Rockford is having his parole request denied — for the 32nd time.
The Rockford Register Star reports (http://bit.ly/1bvxfy9 ) that the Illinois Prisoner Review Board narrowly rejected Calvin Madison's latest efforts to be released from prison by a 5-6 vote.
He's serving a 150-year sentence for killing 19-year-old gas station attendant John Hogan. Authorities say Madison shot Hogan four times in the back of his head.
The 66-year-old will be eligible for parole again next year. Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato told the paper that he'll oppose any future parole requests.
