A man serving a life sentence is one step closer to getting out of prison.
The Iowa State Board of Parole has requested an interview with Rasberry Williams.
He shot and killed a man in Waterloo in 1974. He was given the mandatory sentence of life without parole.
Last year Governor Branstad signed an order commuting Williams’ sentence.
Prison officials say he’s been a model prisoner during his time behind bars.
Williams will appear before the parole board on April 16th.
