SPRINGFIELD -- A Springfield man who murdered his father and brother with an ax in 1987 will be released next month on parole after serving 30 years, despite objections from the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office.
Jerry Rogan was 20 at the time of the slayings.
He pleaded no contest to charges of murder in the slaying of his 15-year-old brother, Terry Rogan, and 55-year-old father, Perry Rogan. He was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison.
The father and son were murdered with an ax as they slept, the Springfield News-Sun reported at the time. Jerry Rogan called police and said the pair were “gone.” Police said he later admitted to committing the murders.
The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction parole board approved his release in January, according to its website, and he’s scheduled to get out of prison in April.
He’ll be on supervised parole for five years.
The Clark County Prosecutor’s Office opposed Rogan’s release at the board meeting, Prosecutor Andy Wilson said, but the board granted parole.

FAIRFIELD — Jungle Jim’s International Market will unveil a “sweet” new something on Saturday — but the surprise is staying under under wraps until then.
The secret-for-now item will become part of the store’s permanent decor on Saturday, which also happens to be National Jelly Bean Day.
Here’s what the international grocer is revealing:
“We’re happy that this will reside amongst all the other wild things to see at Jungle Jim’s,” said Lizz Jungkunz, the Fairfield store’s candy manager and buyer. “It’s a gift to the Jungle, but we also feel like it’s a gift to the community because of its uniqueness and how special it is to Jungle Jim, personally.”
“It’s bigger and better than anything anyone could have imagined and we think the public is going to love it,” she said.
To celebrate the addition of the one-of-a-kind “sweet treasure” to the store’s already over-the-top decor, Jungle Jim’s is planning an unveiling event, with store founder “Jungle Jim” Bonaminio on hand to take photos with families next to the new attraction.
Other family activities in conjunction with the event will include a Jelly Belly Beanboozled Challenge, where brave participants will spin a flavor wheel to win coupons and prizes.
The store also will have more than 1,000 Jelly Belly sample giveaways in addition to a “guess how many” contest that will feature prizes.
