The state has denied parole to convicted killed Don Miller. Miller admitted killing four women in East Lansing in 1977 and 1978.

At the time of the confession he was already serving time for sexually assaulting a teenage girl and trying to kill her and her younger brother.

He pleaded guilty to manslaughter was given a reduced sentence after he helped police find the then-missing bodies of three of the women he killed.

Miller might already be out of prison except for the efforts of the Ingham and Eaton County Prosecutors' Offices.

They worked to keep him locked him and helped get Miller convicted of possessing a weapon in prison in 1998. That added another 20 to 40 years to his sentence.

The latest denial means Miller won't be up for parole again until at least August of 2021. His sentence will be up on March 24 of 2031.
