Kansas man to be paroled for seventh time

WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) — A man convicted of a 1981 Douglas County killing is set to be released from prison for the seventh time.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Kansas Prisoner Review Board recently decided to parole 57-year-old L.V. Luarks once the Kansas Department of Corrections approves a plan.

He remained in the Winfield Correctional Facility as of Wednesday.

Luarks was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Terry Brown. The Topeka woman’s body was found on a Douglas County road six miles northwest of Lawrence.

Prison records show Luarks was released six times between 1992 and 2009. Four of those times were on parole, and the two others were for post-release supervision.

Luarks was returned to custody each time for violating mandatory rules.
