A Dunn County jury has denied conditional release for a man committed to a state mental hospital for killing four people in the Chippewa Valley.
Jurors deliberated about an hour Friday before denying 65-year-old Alvin Taylor's request.
Taylor's attorney contended his client is no longer on medication and hasn't had a violent outburst at Mendota Mental Health Institute in 25 years. Taylor once portrayed himself as a "soldier of God" who received messages over radio and TV directing him to kill four people in the 1980s.
In closing arguments, District Attorney James Peterson called Taylor "a very dangerous man" and urged jurors to recommit him, the Leader-Telegram reports.
The victims include Timothy Hayden, of Menomonie; Robert Williams and James Severson, both from Eau Claire; and Daniel Lundgren, of Esko, Minn.
