KETCHUM -- The Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole has denied parole for a man convicted of killing two men and injuring another during a shooting rampage in the central Idaho resort town of Ketchum in 1990.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports the commission last week also determined that 59-year-old Mitchel John Odiaga must serve another 15 years before again becoming eligible for parole.

In August 1991 Odiaga was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder, one count of attempted second-degree murder, one count of aggravated assault, and one count of using a deadly weapon to commit a felony.

In 1994 the Idaho Supreme Court ordered a new trail. Odiaga then pleaded guilty to the same charges in exchange for a less severe sentence.
