3 Men Convicted in Monfils Murder to Have Early Release Hearings


GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Three of the six men convicted of killing Green Bay paper mill worker Tom Monfils in 1992 will soon have hearings on early prison releases.

64-year-old Rey Moore and 46-year-old Michael Hirn will try again next month to get the state’s Earned Release Review Commission to free them. The panel said no to both men a year ago.

Defendant Michael Johnson will have his first parole hearing in March.

Two others convicted in the Monfils killing will stay in prison for awhile. 69-year-old Dale Basten is not up for a parole hearing until next year. And 59-year-old Keith Kutska won’t get his first chance until 2015.

The 6th defendant, Michael Piaskowski, was freed in 2001 after a federal judge ruled there was not enough evidence to convict him.

According to prosecutors, Monfils was thrown down a pulp vat at the old James River paper mill in November of 1992. Prosecutors said he told police that Kutska planned to steal an extension cord from the plant.
