WOBURN, Mass. (AP) -- The brother of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is expected to ask a judge to send him back to jail to finish his sentence on an assault and battery conviction in the death of their 70-year-old father.

Mark Kerrigan was released July 27 from a county jail where he was serving 212 years.

A spokeswoman for the Probation Service said Kerrigan is due in court Wednesday, where he's expected to ask that he be sent back to jail to finish the remaining six months of his sentence.

Kerrigan is not accused of violating probation. If he is sent back to jail, he would be exempt from conditions placed on his early release, including alcohol counseling and anger management classes.

Kerrigan's trial lawyer did not return calls.

A judge will decide whether Kerrigan is returned to jail.
