An Arizona inmate whose life sentence for a murder conviction was commuted nearly two months ago remains incarcerated as authorities examine an allegation that he molested a girl during a 1989 prison visit. 

The Arizona Capitol Times reports the allegation against 70-year-old Doyle Williams was raised in late December by the girl’s mother. 

An attorney who represents Williams said authorities concluded at the time that the allegation was unfounded.

The Arizona Board of Executive Clemency said it was not previously aware of the allegation because there was no record of them after the prison investigated.
