A man convicted of murdering a Lynchburg teenager in 1989 will be released on parole on April 2nd.    Gregory Joyner was serving a life sentence for the murder and attempted rape of 15 year old Sarah Jamison before the Virginia Parole Board granted his early release late last year.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Bethany Harrison talked with the Morningline about the decision to release Joyner and the recent controversy surrounding the Parole Board:
