Houston (SFTHH) – Sources close to SFTHH have confirmed that convicted wild horse killer Jason Meduna has been released from a Nebraska correctional facility 6 months early under a work release program.  Meduna was convicted of allowing 70+ wild horses and burros to starve to death on his property in Morrill County Nebraska during early 2009.

The Nebraska Correctional Center verified that, as of April 13th, Meduna has been released into the community during day light hours but, at this point in time, is required to return to his cell in the evening.  Possible furloughs could be granted where Meduna would be allowed to stay away from his prison cell for periods of 72 hours with an ultimate furlough being granted for Meduna to live at a Nebraska residence.

Local citizens, close to this case, have expressed their concern to SFTHH over the early release of Meduna for a variety of reasons but as of this writing their worries have fallen up deaf ears in the Nebraska State Correctional system.

Meduna is not allowed to leave the state of Nebraska at this time.
