A Franklin County man who stabbed his neighbor to death in 1971 is being considered for parole.

A Franklin County man convicted of second-degree murder in 1973 is being considered for parole next month, and the State Parole Board is asking for comments during three public sessions being held this month.

Stanley N. Garrett was convicted in the September 1971 stabbing death of his neighbor, 85-year-old Maude Richardson. He was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for Richardson's death.
