A parole hearing for convicted killer Judith Ann Neelley is scheduled for May in Alabama.
Neelley was originally sentenced to death in the electric chair for the torture, rape, and slaying of 13-year-old Lisa Ann Millican, but her death sentence was commuted in 1999 by then Alabama Gov. Fob James.
Neelley and her husband Alvin Neelley abducted 13-year-old Lisa Ann Millican from Rome’s Riverbend Mall in 1982.
Millican was driven to a motel in Alabama where she was held captive before being raped, injected with drain cleaner, and shot before being dumped into the Little River Canyon.
If Neelley is granted parole, she would likely be arrested by Georgia authorities to serve her time for the kidnapping and killing of Janice Chatman.
