KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Officials have denied parole for a man convicted in the 1989 death of a Kansas City, Kansas, police officer.

The Kansas Prisoner Review Board has ruled that 47-year-old Darryl L. Lewis will have to wait three years before he can seek parole again.

Lewis was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Officer Jeff Young, and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. Lewis was driving a stolen car and trying to elude arrest when he struck and critically injured Young in November 1988.

Young was in coma until he died on August 1, 1989.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/2aDb3Of ) that the parole board said in its decision that Lewis needs to avoid any disciplinary reports.
