Boulay was convicted of strangling Will with a telephone cord. Boulay confessed the murder to his parents and tried to plead temporary insanity, but was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 24 years in prison, a sentence that Will's mother said at the time showed ""that more value was placed on his life than my daughter's." Based on Illinois law at the time of his sentencing, Boulay had a day of his sentence cut if he exhibited good behavior. Department of Corrections officials say that Boulay has met the terms of his parole.
Now 33, Boulay married his now-wife whom he's known since they were teenagers while he was in prison. Rachel Rivers Boulay is an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Hawaii's John A. Burns School of Medicine. Honolulu prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro said Friday that his office unsuccessfully tried to block Boulay's arrival. He's expected to arrive in Honolulu next week and serve three years of parole.
