CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A man convicted of killing a Putnam County sheriff’s deputy in 1989 will remain behind bars for at least three more years.

Media outlets report that the West Virginia Parole Board on Monday denied parole for Robert Gray following a hearing at Huttonsville Correctional Center.

Monday’s parole hearing was Gray’s sixth since he was sentenced to life in prison in 1990. He was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Deputy John Janey.

Janey was off-duty and staking out a home for an insurance company when he was fatally shot.
