Fallin tentatively approves inmate's parole

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._Governor Mary Fallin has tentatively approved parole for a man who was sentenced to life in prison for his role in a 1997 murder.

Jesil Wilson, who was 13 at the time, was convicted of the first-degree murder of Mitchell Knighten. Wilson was not shooter in the incident and is now 31.

The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board recommended parole for Wilson under the condition that he completes a vo-tech training program and also serves 180 days in a work-release center. His 180 days at the work-release center must be completed before the parole is official.

Zachary Ferguson, Wilson’s older cousin, is serving a life sentence for Knighten’s death.
