WAUKESHA (WKOW) -- A man who's been institutionalized since 1975 after killing two Waukesha County police officers as a teenager could soon be a free man.
In April, Alan A. Randall won tentative release after mental health experts testified that he hasn't suffered a mental illness since 1989. On Thursday, a judge will consider a proposal that lays out the conditions for his release.
Randall has repeatedly petitioned for release, saying that he is no longer mentally ill. However, the state has argued that he could still pose a danger to himself or others.
Waukesha County prosecutor Brad Schimel says Randall's behavior for the past four years has been exemplary so he doesn't oppose the 55-year-old's release.
Defense attorney Craig Powell has declined to comment until after the hearing.
