Ohio slaying suspect denied parole 4 times

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A newspaper reports that an ex-convict accused of killing a 13-year-old girl over the weekend was denied parole four times before being released last August.

The Dayton Daily News reports that 39-year-old Dameon Wesley, who was sentenced in the murder of his roommate, was last denied parole in 2010 because his release "would create undue risk to public safety."

Dayton police say he killed a 13-year-old girl by shooting her in the head and wounded another 13-year-old girl Sunday night. Police said it followed a heated argument with the dead girl's mother. The wounded girl is recovering after surgery.

As he was led to jail in handcuffs Tuesday night, Wesley apologized to his girlfriend and her family.

He served 18 years in prison before being paroled last year.
