oklahoma city, Oklahoma -
(KFOR) An Edmond, Oklahoma soldier convicted of murder will soon be coming home.
Former U.S. Army First Lt. Michael Behenna won his request for parole.
Behenna served 5 years of a 15 year prison sentence at Fort Leavenworth prison in Kansas.
"I'm just so grateful and happy that Michael is finally coming home," said Behenna's mother Vicki Behenna.
Vicki says her son's early parole comes as a huge relief, because, despite tens of thousands of people signing an online petition asking for a new trial, for 5 years those appeals were repeatedly denied.
