|MO Parole Board Rejects Parole in 1981 Murder|
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri's Probation and Parole Board has denied parole for a prisoner convicted of the gruesome murder of an elderly northern Missouri man in 1991.
Convicted killer Jeromy Lay is incarcerated at the maximum-security South Central Correctional Center in Licking.
The 43-year-old Lay is serving a life sentence without parole for the April 1991 stabbing death of 77-year-old William Howard Kirtley in Moberly.
Lay was 17 at the time of the killing and was eligible for a parole hearing because of a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which said that life sentences without parole for juveniles was unconstitutional.
