CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Parole Board says a man known for fatally shooting a man who had shot and killed a police officer in Franconia can be released on parole.
Gregory Floyd will be released June 4.
Floyd has been in prison for two years for threatening a neighbor after a road dispute.
Board members told Floyd Thursday they would not release him if the law gave them an option to continue holding him.
The woman Floyd threatened told board members that as a result of her encounter with him she suffers post-traumatic stress and fears retaliation when he is released.
Floyd shot and killed Liko Kenney in 2007 after Kenney fatally shot Franconia police officer Bruce McKay. The state attorney general's office ruled Floyd's actions were justified.
