MADISON – The family of a woman who was stabbed to death 25 years ago pressed Gov. Tony Evers’ top aide Thursday to try to intervene to stop the parole of their loved one’s killer.

Maggie Gau, chief of staff for Gov. Tony Evers.

After an impromptu meeting at the state Capitol with Evers chief of staff Maggie Gau, relatives of Johanna Balsewicz left with a promise that they could meet with Evers by Tuesday, they said. That’s the day Douglas Balsewicz is to be released under a decision made by the state Parole Commission. 

“Do you know why he’s a danger to society? Because I don’t believe that you can pull — I don’t believe prison can pull jealousy out of a man, which he was a very jealous man,” the victim’s sister, Kim Cornils, told reporters after the meeting.
