OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state board has denied parole to a man convicted of killing a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy in 1978.

The Kitsap Sun reports (http://is.gd/3TK9Vw ) that the recent decision by the state’s Indeterminate Sentence Review Board came in the case of Nedley G. Norman Jr.

He was convicted of aggravated murder for fatally shooting Deputy Dennis Allred in April 1978.

Norman was initially sentenced to death, a sentence reduced to life without parole in 1981, after the state Supreme Court declared the death penalty law in use at that time to be unconstitutional. Later, a federal appeals court further reduced Norman’s sentence, making parole possible.

The state board found that Norman continues to “deny virtually any responsibility for the offense.”

This was his fourth parole opportunity.

The Kitsap County sheriff’s office said Tuesday that Norman will be eligible for another parole hearing in 2018.
