TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Three convicted killers who have spent a total of more than 90 years in prison are among 29 Kansas inmates eligible for parole.

The Kansas Prisoner Review board will hear public comments regarding the inmates on Jan. 16 in the Topeka Municipal Court chambers.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1AtrNKL ) reports 59-year-old Albert D. Williams, 73-year-old Marvin “Butch” Thornton and 47-year-old Clyde Sullivan are among inmates up for parole.

Williams is serving two life sentences for killing 24-year-old Pamela Parker and 19-year-old Pam Smith in early 1978.

Thornton is serving time for second-degree murder in June 1977, while Sullivan was sentenced to 10 years to life in prison for second-degree murder in January 1986.

Both Thornton and Sullivan previously were paroled but sent back to prison for violating conditions of their release.
