TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - The Ohio Parole Board denied a campus police officer convicted of killing a UT student early release on Wednesday.

Jeffrey Hodge was convicted of killing Melissa Herstrum after the officer put her in handcuffs and shot her 14 times, court records show.

In a unanimous decision, the parole board said Hodges’ release could pose “undue risk to public safety.”

Hodge’s sentence was continued for 10 years.
