DENVER (AP) -- Officials are questioning why a Colorado prison parolee who ignored supervision and is suspected in a murder after his release was placed on a low level of supervision by Colorado's Division of Parole.

According to KCNC, the Colorado parole board decided to release Warren Watson from prison about three years early, based in part on internal assessments that suggested the 52-year-old career criminal was a low risk for committing more crimes.

The Colorado's Department of Corrections is auditing thousands of sentencing records following the discovery that Evan Ebel, who is suspected of killing corrections chief Tom Clements and Denver pizza deliveryman Nathan Leon on March 19, was released from prison four years early because of a clerical error.
