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.
