LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada board has granted parole to a man who sat on death row for 30 years for the killing of an elderly Las Vegas woman.
The Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday that the state Parole Board said 60-year-old Ronnie Milligan has a solid release plan and is required to get a job and visit his parole officer.
Milligan was in his 20s when he was convicted of the 1980 robbery-slaying of 77-year-old Zolihon Voinski in rural western Nevada.
Milligan was one of three people charged with the crime but he was the only one to receive the death penalty.
The parole board said Milligan had a positive inmate record.
He told the board he was drunk during the slaying and didn't remember what had occurred.
