A man who sat on Nevada’s death row for 30 years has been granted parole.  Ronnie Milligan was granted a release by the state Parole Board.  He must get a job, report to his parole officer, and stay away from alcohol and bars. 

Milligan, who is now 60-years old, was sentenced to die for the 1980 slaying of a Las Vegas woman in rural western Nevada.  He was apparently drunk at the time of the killing. 

Last September, a judge overturned Milligan’s death penalty because of an error made during the trial and the penalty hearing.
