SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Prison officials in South Dakota say they will alter parole policies in response to the killing of a 75-year-old woman in her Sioux Falls home.
Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty for 41-year-old James McVay, accused in the July 2 death of Maybelle Schein. Police say McVay stabbed Schein to death and then stole her car as part of a scheme to drive to Washington, D.C., and kill President Barack Obama.
McVay was released on parole two days before Schein was killed. The Department of Correction's list of "system improvements" includes contacting additional law enforcement when certain high-risk offenders are paroled.
McVay is charged with first-degree murder and burglary.
