Granbury family hopes to keep convicted killer behind bars

A Granbury family is hoping to persuade the state to keep a convicted killer in prison. Advertisements in the local media are asking residents to write letters to the Texas Department of Corrections asking them not to grant parole to William Wayne Martin. In 1986, Martin was sentenced to 99 years in prison for the murder of 18-year-old Acton resident Ted Herr. He was accused of dragging Martin behind a motorcycle with a rope around his neck and striking him in the face with a machete. Now 61 years old, Martin is being reviewed for possible parole. It’s his final appeal before he’ll be released in October of 2019. The family is asking for letters to be sent to the TDC, Victim Services Division.
