TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The state's prisoner review board has denied parole to the man convicted in a 1992 murder.

Kenneth Cook is serving a sentence of 15 years to life after being convicted of 2nd degree murder for the shooting death of Charles Duty.

Police say Cook shot Duty with a black powder pistol, then he cut off Duty's tattoos, pulled his teeth, and dumped his body into the Wakarusa River.

The board will consider Cook's case again in December.
