Curtis Fry will move to the Hope House in Coralville to complete his work release, his attorney confirmed Wednesday.

Peter Persaud said Fry will move into Hope House as soon as a spot opens up. Until then, Fry will remain in custody.

The Iowa Board of Parole granted Fry work release Tuesday, after previously denying his release in April.

Fry, now 24, has been held at the North Central Correctional Facility in Rockwell City, Iowa, following his voluntary-manslaughter conviction in the spring 2009 death of 75-year-old Patrick McEwen. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

When asked for further comment, Pursaud issued the following statement.

"I've been a criminal defense attorney for a long time, and the one thing I can tell you is that Curtis Fry is an extremely contrite young man," Persaud said. "He will tell his story to all who will listen in hopes of avoiding similar tragedies."
