OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A convicted killer who was originally sent to death row is up for parole this week. Alfred Brooks was convicted and sentenced to die for the kidnapping and killing of Judy Webb and wounding of Karen Trantham in 1974. The two women were taken from an Oklahoma City night club to a remote area and shot.

Brooks' death penalty was commuted to life in prison by an appeals court.

Police in Norman have said the gun used to kill Webb has been linked to three unsolved homicides in Del City and Norman but they don't have enough evidence for charges.
