MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Attorney General Troy King says he will oppose granting parole for three inmates in separate cases.

The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles set a hearing Tuesday morning on the early release requests.

Mark Moore is one of five defendants involved in the murder of Harold Pugh and his son Joey in Colbert County in 1997.

In a Pell City case a decade ago, Tyrone Antony Jackson attacked and raped a 76-year-old retired schoolteacher.

In the third case, Wayne Smith raped, strangled and beat his victim into unconsciousness, and then left her for dead in 1987. He was convicted in Greene County.

In a statement, King says justice demands that they serve their entire sentences.
