The Indiana Parole Board has revoked the parole of a convicted killer who went to Michigan City the day before three inmates escaped from the state prison there.
The board voted 4-1 Thursday to send 44-year-old Paul Komyatti Jr. back to prison after finding he violated his state learner’s permit by driving alone to northern Indiana from Indianapolis.
Most board members didn’t believe Komyatti when he said he caught a ride with another ex-con to Michigan City, where he said he went to a park and a casino. He was arrested for parole violation after investigators questioned him about the escape.
The Hammond native left the Indiana State Prison three months ago after spending 26 years behind bars for his role in the 1983 decapitation slaying of his father.
