BURBANK : Convicted Killer Again Denied Parole

December 02, 1993|ED BOND

Paul Perveler, who is serving a life sentence for the Burbank murder of his wife, the attempted murder of his ex-wife and the Los Angeles killing of his girlfriend's husband, was denied parole Wednesday.

Key players in the investigation in the 1969 case have pressed for denial of Perveler's parole every time he has become eligible.

Assemblyman Pat Nolan (R-Glendale), along with Perveler's ex-wife, Lela Halverson, launched a campaign to keep Perveler in prison, which prompted 6,000 calls or letters to Nolan's office, said Mike McCey, the assemblyman's spokesman.

Nolan is also co-author of a bill to lengthen the minimum time between parole hearings for anyone convicted of attempted murder to five years. That bill, which has already passed the state Senate, is scheduled for consideration next month by the Assembly Public Safety Committee.

Perveler's crimes were chronicled in the book "Till Death Us Do Part," written by his prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi, and broadcast in a television movie last year.

The state Board of Prison Terms set Perveler's next parole hearing in 1996.
