Man convicted of killing 2 teens in 1976 up for parole again


The Prisoner Review Board has again denied parole to a man convicted of killing two teenage workers at a gas station on Christmas Eve, 1976.

Dale Dean Finch was up for parole Thursday. Finch is serving two consecutive 50 to 100 year sentences for shooting and killing 17-year-old Michael Pixler and 16-year-old Randall Morton while they worked at a Citgo gas station in Rockford.

Finch has been up for parole multiple times, but has always been denied. The Board unanimously denied him again on Thursday. Finch will be eligible for parole again in three years.

Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato traveled to Springfield for the hearing. Tune into 13 News at 5 and 6 for more on the hearing.
