Waukesha, Wis. — For the fifth time since his conviction for killing two Summit police officers in a 1975 ambush at the town hall when he was just 16, Alan Randall is seeking release from a state mental institution.

Randall, 54, last sought release in 2008, which was denied by Judge Lee S. Dreyfus after a trial. The decision was appealed but upheld last year. Previously he had unsuccessfully sought release with conditions in 1990, 1991 and 1995.
