After months of reviewing his case, the State Board of Pardons and Paroles announced Friday that the decision has been made to parole E. Keller Wilcox Jr., who has served 25 years in prison for the 1972 murder of Hellen Griffin Hanks.

Wilcox is expected to be released sometime in May. As part of his parole, Wilcox has been banished from Lowndes County, is prohibited from ever having contact with Hanks' family and will be required to wear an electronic monitoring device, according to Scheree Lipscomb, director of public affairs with the State Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Wilcox continually denied his involvement in the murder even after his conviction, a letter written to the State Board in 2006 by Wilcox, containing a statement of confession for the death, was discovered drawing speculation that the letter was a tactic used to speed up his parole.
