TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials are considering parole for a 51-year-old man convicted of killing a 9-year-old boy and dismembering the body.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/12hoeGA ) the Kansas Prisoner Review Board is considering parole for John William, who becomes eligible in July.

He was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted in Douglas County of first-degree murder of 9-year-old Richard Settlemyre, whose torso was found in the Kansas River in July 1988. The boy's head, hands, feet and other parts of his body had been cut off.

The board plans to meet in June with William, who's in maximum security at the El Dorado Correctional Facility. The board denied William parole in 2003, citing disciplinary problems in prison.
