DES MOINES, Iowa — Officials with the Iowa Department of Corrections say a convicted murderer has been released from prison.
Rasberry Williams of Waterloo was sentenced to life in prison for killing a man for a gambling debt in 1974.
Last year Gov. Terry Branstad commuted Williams’ sentence after corrections officials spoke on Williams’ behalf, claiming he was a model prisoner. In April, the Iowa State Board of Parole agreed to release him.
Authorities said earlier this year that the 68-year-old would be transferred to an assisted living facility.
