Teen Who Killed Pamela Smart's Husband Freed 25 Years Later

The triggerman in the Pamela Smart murder case — whose 1991 trial prompted sensational media coverage and spawned a Nicole Kidman movie — has been released from prison after serving nearly 25 years.
William Flynn was 16 and known as "Billy" in 1990 when he and three friends participated in what prosecutors said was Smart's plot to kill her husband in Derry, New Hampshire. Flynn pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and served his sentence in Maine.
Also released on parole Thursday in New Hampshire is Patrick "Pete" Randall, who held a knife to Gregg Smart's throat while Flynn shot him in the head.
Pamela Smart, who was 22 and worked as a media coordinator at the boys' high school when her husband was killed, is serving life in prison without the chance of parole. She admitted to seducing Flynn but insisted she didn't plan her husband's murder.
