Man convicted in 1991 murder of gay man leaves prison

HOUSTON -- The last of the 10 people serving time for the 1991 gay-bashing death of a Houston banker has left prison on parole.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Jon Buice left a state prison in Huntsville Wednesday.

Buice served 23 years of the 45-year sentence he got in a plea bargain. He was granted parole in November over the protests of Nancy Rodriguez, the mother of victim Paul Broussard.

Buice was 17 when he and nine other teens and young men drove into the city looking for homosexuals to harass. They found Broussard and two friends walking near a gay nightspot, and the two groups got into a fight. Buice stabbed him to death.

He had previously been denied parole at least eight times.
