Parole Denied for 32nd Time for 1970 Murder

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) -- A man convicted a 1970 fatal shooting in Rockford is having his parole request denied -- for the 32nd time.

The Illinois Prisoner Review Board narrowly rejected Calvin Madison's latest efforts to be released from prison by a 5-6 vote.

He's serving a 150-year sentence for killing 19-year-old gas station attendant John Hogan. Authorities say Madison shot Hogan four times in the back of his head.

The 66-year-old will be eligible for parole again next year. Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato said that he'll oppose any future parole requests.
