Wis. Man Who Killed Wife, 2 Kids Is Released

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A paranoid schizophrenic who stabbed his wife and two children to death 24-years-ago in Milwaukee has been released again.

Keith Kalota was confined to Mendota Mental Health Institute from 1987 to 2003, when he was granted conditional release. But he was returned in September when he was accused of violating the terms of his conditional release in an incident involving a woman.

His attorney Robin Shellow tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that a Milwaukee County judge approved his conditional release Friday and ordered the 52-year-old to have no contact with that woman.

In 1987, Kalota killed his 28-year-old wife, his 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son before stabbing himself in the leg. He said God told him to do it.
