HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Parole Board has denied parole for a man convicted of killing a Nickerson man in 1984.

The Hutchinson News reports (https://bit.ly/1BHyBt2 ) that Danny Pickerill has been denied parole for his conviction in the 1984 death of Nickerson resident Richard Wilson. He was sentenced to two life terms and has spent 30 years in prison for first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping. He won’t be eligible for parole again until June 2017.

Adam Pfannenstiel, communications director for the Kansas Department of Corrections, says parole was denied because of the violent nature of the crime.

Pickerill is accused of murdering Wilson, wounding his wife, Peggy, and then kidnapping her daughter and granddaughter.

This was Pickerill’s first time before the parole board.
