MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A state appeals court has ruled the La Crosse Tribune is not entitled to most records it requested related to the release of a man convicted of killing three people.
Bryan Stanley was found to be mentally ill when he killed a priest and two others at an Onalaska church in 1985. He was released from a mental health institution in 2009, but was sent back this week after violating his release conditions.
The Tribune filed an open records request for Stanley's address, release date and monitoring provisions but a La Crosse County judge denied that, citing mental health laws.
The appeals court decided Thursday the newspaper can only get the original order of placement, but its contents are unclear. Attorney James Birnbaum plans to speak with Tribune representatives to determine their next step.
