CAR WONT SHUT OFF

1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass

1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4 cyl Automatic

I have an 89 cutlass ciara. Recently car started acting up when I put the car in park. It literally will not shut off! I can turn it the opposite way and it will crank as if it was restarting but nothing else. I have attempted to put it in nuetral and see but nothing. Up until just 20 mins ago I wasn't able to get the key out when it does this. Well the key just came out. And the car kept running! I had to disconnect at the battery terminal after 40 mins of trying! I just got the car about 2 months ago ( not really a gem to begin with). Always have had to sort of jerk the column into park when shuttin car off but nothing like this. Any suggestions or help so appreciated. Thanks, Mandy
