Dale Basten, member of Monfils 6, paroled

Four now remain in prison for 1992 murder

WFRV-- One of the five men serving a life prison term for the 1992 murder of Green Bay paper mill worker Tom Monfils – was released from prison Tuesday. Dale Basten's failing heath was cited as the reason for his parole.

Basten, 76, was most recently at the Dodge Correctional Institution. Court documents show that he will be placed at an assisted living center in the Fox Valley, subject to electronic monitoring.


Basten, Keith Kutska, Rey Moore, Michael Hirn, Michael Johnson and Michael Piaskowski were all convicted in 1995 for the murder. In 2001, Piaskowski’s conviction was later overturned by a federal judge. The other five all remained in prison, until Basten’s release.
