The board's decision, which followed a public hearing, will be announced officially next week, the newspaper said. Lt. Gov. Mark Singel, who serves as chairman of the board, declined to discuss the board's private deliberations, but the Post-Gazette said another official connected with the board confirmed the decision to deny the request. David Bayne, the secretary of the board, declined to comment on the Post-Gazette's report. Monsignor Charles Owens Rice, an activist priest from Pittsburgh, spoke on Hines' behalf during a public hearing, telling the board the convict is sorry for his crime and has reformed during his prison term. But Allegheny County Deputy District Attorney Robert Eberhardt said Hines' record of misconduct in prison proves he is not ready to be released. Since published reports of Hines' request for commutation of his life sentence, Eberhardt said he has received numerous letters from friends and family of the murdered schoolgirl asking that the clemency request be denied. He said Miss Taylor's classmates, who were 17 or 18 at the time of her death, are "reliving this whole event again." "In my view, the cotumunity is not ready for William Hines. And they may not be ready in two years," he said. Rice said Hines, who was 15 at the time of the crime, has progressed since entering prison as a "teen-age wino" and gang member. "The crime was brutal. A young woman was slain, she was mutilated, she was raped," he said. "But he (Hines) was a wild street kid ... and you have to remember that the '70s was a time of frenzy, particularly in the black community. People were LIFE INSURANCE . LOW COST INSURANCE Wilfred E.

Published reports indicate the schoolgirl's almost nude body was found covered with more than 100 stab wounds, apparently from beer can pop-top rings similar to those worn by members of Hines' gang. Her head had also been smashed by a rock. Rice said he was not asking that Hines be pardoned, but that his sen- tence be changed from life to 20 years to life. With that arrangement, Hines could be freed under strict probationary rules within a few years, he added. Eberhardt argued that Miss Tay- lor's "torture" is so heinous that Hines should not be freed. "Eileen was a true bridge between the white and black communities," he said. "She had no fear of walking through a black community, Her friends looked up to her as a true advocate and bridge." Hines' age at the time of the crime and the time he has served do not necessarily make him a candidate for commutation, Eberhardt said. NOTICE!
