The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports that 32-year old Harold D. Waller, will seek clemency from his 40 year sentence in a hearing next month. Waller was given $3,000 to kill a man who might testify in a trial. At the time, he (Waller) was just 16-years old. The Gazette reports "clemency must be granted by the governor, but the parole board decides whether to recommend it" and it is "rarely recommended or granted." See story here.
