A man convicted of killing two Waukesha County cops in 1975 may be released from a mental institution where he lives, but he won't be coming back to Waukesha County, according to a story by the Associated Press.
A judge at the time of the murder found that Alan A. Randall, now 55, wasn't responsible for the murders because he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia when he was originally sentenced. But this April he was granted a tentative release when mental health experts said "he hasn't suffered from a mental illness since 1989."
Now Waukesha County Judge Donald Hassin wants to release him. However, the state hasn't found a place for him to live and the judge has postponed the decision.
The possibility for Randall's release hasn't set well with the victim's families and they don't want him living in Waukesha County. But Randall told Hassin he has job offers in Madison and Neenah. Hassin is giving state officials more time to find an appropriate place for Randall to live.
