N.D.'s longest-serving inmate on parole

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The man who was North Dakota's longest serving inmate at the state penitentiary has been released on parole.

Officials say James Iverson has moved to the Bismarck Transition Center to help him ease back into community life.

The 70-year-old Iverson has been in prison for almost 40 years. He was convicted in 1969 of strangling two women in a Grand Forks apartment a year earlier.

The state Parole Board will check on his progress in April.
