Glenn Doneghy will not be getting out of prison for at least another two years.
A parole board Tuesday decided Doneghy should stay behind bars for running over and killing Lexington Police Officer Bryan Durman in 2010.
Doneghy was convicted of manslaughter and assault, which carried a sentence of 20 years.
According to Kentucky law, Doneghy's charges are considered 'non-violent.'
The distinction means that he became eligible for parole after serving 20 percent of his sentence.
Bryan's wife Brandy Durman attended the parole hearing.
She said it was a relief to know Doneghy would remain in prison.
Doneghy would be eligible for parole again in two years.
Brandy Durman said she would continue to go to Doneghy's hearings to make sure that he is not released early.
Doneghy would not comment on his conviction during the parole hearing.
He told the board he was in the process of filing a motion to have his conviction dropped.
According to Fayette County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson, Doneghy has yet to file such paperwork.
