MILWAUKEE, Wisc. - Cop killer Alan Randall, 54, was not in court on Tuesday.
His appearance was waived for the status conference where motions for two psychological reports were confirmed for his jury trial on Jan. 22.
Randall was charged in 1976 with intentional homicide after allegedly killing his neighbor, Ronald Hoeft, and two Summit police officers, Robert Atkins and Wayne Olson. He was never convicted of Hoeft's murder but pleaded guilty by reason of insanity in 1977 to the two police killings, four burglaries and a car theft.
Alan A. Randall is seeking to be released from Mendota Mental Health Institution, where he has lived since 2005. This is the fifth time Randall has appealed since his conviction in 1975.
He had unsuccessfully sought conditional releases in 1990, 1991 and 1995. He again sought to appeal in 2008, which was rejected by Judge Lee S. Dreyfus after trial. He filed his most latest appeal, a petition for re-examination, in September of this year.

"History in mental institutions He was sent to Central State Hospital in 1977 and transferred to Winnebago Mental Health Institution in 1981. At that time, the mental illness diagnosis was dropped, and he was granted off-grounds, unescorted privileges.

He earned credits at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, worked full time, had access to a bank account with $100,000 in it, owned a home and a had two cars. He falsified time-sheets, saying he was working at the Winnebago greenhouse when he was not, and was caught having lunch with a co-worker in Appleton without staff permission, and his privileges were revoked."

Nice...
