JACKSON, Mich. — A man who was sentenced to life without parole for murder in Jackson County more than 25 years ago will have a chance at freedom.

Stanley Fowle was 17-years-old when he killed his great-grandmother during a robbery.

He's getting a second chance because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made mandatory life sentences for minors unconstitutional.

His new sentence is 25 to 60 years and the Jackson County prosecutor is not happy about it.

"I respect Judge Jordan's decision of how she re-sentenced but we certainly oppose that. I can tell the general public that we're going to object to parole, given the facts of this case which are pretty violent and horrific," Jerry Jarzynka, Jackson County prosecutor.

Fowle has served 25 years of his sentence so he's now eligible for parole.

We will let you know if the state grants it.
