Special prosecutor appointed in Wiley parole case

THERMOPOLIS (WNE) — A murder case from 1990 is coming up again, the James Michael Wiley case.

Wiley was convicted in 1990 on charges of first- and second-degree murder in the deaths of his stepmother and three brothers at their home near Thermopolis and was sentenced to life in prison. He was 15 at the time of the deaths.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a juvenile sentenced to life in prison should have the opportunity for parole after serving 25 years.

Wiley has passed that point and is seeking parole under the Supreme Court ruling.
