A 68-year-old serial killer is starting another attempt to be released from custody.
Alvin Taylor has been confined to the Mendota Mental Health Institute since the late 1980s, after killing four men in Wisconsin and Minnesota between 1985 and 1988.
Taylor was convicted of first degree murder in Dunn County, but was sent to Mendota instead of Prison. The nigh club singer, who traveled across the state, was also convicted of murder in Eau Claire County and attempted murder in Washington County.
A Washington County Judge on Tuesday ruled that two psychiatrists would be appointed to evaluate Taylor.
Taylor has been regularly seeking a conditional release from confinement since 2010. Even if his release is approved in Washington County, he would still need approval from courts in Dunn and Eau Claire Counties.
