Sparks Family Says Wife's Murderer Denied Parole - Again

Posted: Updated:

The Sparks family of a woman who was murdered 20 years ago near Las Vegas says the man who killed her has been denied parole.

Simon Macias appeared before a parole board earlier this month.

He was convicted of killing 19-year-old Susan Figeley-Macias in 1993. He was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole as part of a plea deal on a second-degree murder charge.

At the hearing, Figeley's family testified that Macias has not changed in prison and should not be released.

Macias will be up for parole for the eighth time in 2016.
