FORT EDWARD - John Justice is now 46-years-old. 28 years ago, he killed his mother and father, his brother, and a neighbor in Kenmore, a suburb of Buffalo.
He was found guilty on two of the murders, but found not responsible by reason of insanity for the other two.
Justice was sentenced to state prison, where he's regularly evaluated by state psychiatrists.
And next year, he'll be eligible for release.
But the state says not so fast. They say Justice is a danger to society and they're asking a judge to keep him locked up.
Justice is an inmate at the maximum security Great Meadow Correctional Facility in the hamlet of Comstock. It's for that reason, the case will be decided by a judge in Washington County.
The complex case will be decided by Supreme Court Judge Stan Pritzker.
