Daniel Okev, the former paratrooper who was convicted in 1997 for killing a British tourist and wounding the man's girlfriend, was released from prison on Thursday after serving a thirteen year sentence.

A parole committee approved Okev's early release after they believed he had been rehabilitated and would not re-offend.

The prosecution announced that they would not appeal the decision.
