LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A man convicted of manslaughter in the death of a Lexington police office will go before the Kentucky Parole Board next week.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (bit.ly/1Xj2mGA) reports Glenn Doneghy has a hearing on Monday. Prosecutor Ray Larson told the newspaper that his office will oppose release for Doneghy, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison in the death of Lexington police officer Bryan Durman.

Durman was struck by Doneghy sport utility vehicle in 2010 as he answered a complaint about loud music and died a short time later at a hospital.

When Doneghy was convicted, the law allowed defendants to be considered for parole after serving 20 percent of their sentence. Lawmakers have since approved the Bryan Durman Act, which mandates a longer time behind bars for manslaughter convictions involving clearly identified police or firefighters.
