MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied a convicted murdered parole in a decades-old case that brought about the creation of a statewide victims' rights advocacy organization.

Jerry Lee Jones was among three men convicted of robbing, raping, and then shooting Quenette Shehane to death in December of 1976.

Following her daughter’s brutal murder, Shehane’s mother, Miriam Shehane, founded Victims of Crime and Leniency, or VOCAL, in 1982. It’s a statewide organization that advocates on behalf of victims and their families.

While multiple people appeared at the hearing in support of the victim’s family Wednesday, every seat available for those representing Jones remained empty. Also absent from the hearing was new Pardons and Paroles Board Chair Lyn Head.

Following Wednesday’s hearing, Miriam Shehane told WSFA 12 News she’s not happy with where Lee is being held.
