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.
