The Parole Board has confirmed that a panel has directed the release of the man responsible for the death of headteacher Philip Lawrence.
A spokesman said:
Learco Chindamo stabbed Philip Lawrence through the heart after the headteacher intervened during a violent altercation outside St George's Roman Catholic School in north west London in 1995.
The 48-year-old had gone to the aid of a 13-year-old who was being attacked when he was murdered.
Chindamo, who was 15 at the time of the incident, was convicted of murder at the Old Bailey and served 15 years behind bars.
He was paroled in July 2010 but rearrested and recalled to prison in November the same year after he was accused of intimidating and robbing a man at a cash machine.
A jury later acquitted him of the robbery.
The killer of headmaster Philip Lawrence is set to be released from jail.
Learco Chindamo - who was 15 at the time of the murder - was previously released in 2010 but recalled to prison.
Philip Lawrence was stabbed to death outside St George's Roman Catholic School in Maida Vale in 1995.
