The state parole board is recommending that a man who has served eight years of a 40-year prison sentence for a murder conviction be granted clemency. The state Post Prison Transfer Board`s three-to-two vote sends the recommendation on to Governor Mike Huckabee. He`ll review of the clemency request from Michael Ryan Webb Junior. The 31-year-old Webb was convicted of first-degree murder in the December 18th, 1993, shooting death of 17-year-old Jason Hatcher on the parking lot of a Sherwood grocery store. Webb was sentenced in 1996 on the murder conviction, plus six years in prison on a first-degree battery conviction in the same case.
