DES MOINES (AP) — The Iowa Board of Parole agreed Wednesday to release a 68-year-old Iowa inmate who has been imprisoned since 1974 for the killing of a man over a gambling debt.

The board approved the parole of Rasberry Williams, who was convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a man outside a Waterloo pool hall. Over the decades, Williams had been a model inmate and in 1979 helped end a prison standoff in which two guards were taken hostage.
