GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A man who skipped out on parole after being released early from a life sentence for a 1951 murder conviction and was returned to custody in 2010 has been denied release for the second year in a row.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1TiVxXx ) that the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole denied Frank Dryman’s request for release Thursday. The 85-year-old, who is on oxygen and has other health conditions, had asked to be moved to an assisted living facility for U.S. veterans.

Dryman was given a life sentence after being found guilty in the shooting death of Clarence Pellett near Shelby 65 years ago.

He was paroled in 1969 and moved to California before disappearing in 1971.

Dryman was discovered in Arizona after 38 years on the run.
