James Wales, the person convicted in the killing of 12-year-old Cheri Lindsey on Binghamton's North Side, will remain in prison for at least two more years.
The 74-year-old Wales has once again been denied parole. He is serving a sentence of 33 years to life for his his 1984 convictions of second-degree murder and first-degree rape.
Cheri Lindsey disappeared in March 1984 while collecting from customers on a newspaper route near her home.
The girl's body was found in the basement of the Wales residence on Sturges Street.
Broome County District Attorney Michael Korchak on Tuesday announced that Wales has been denied parole for a fourth time. He will be eligible for parole again in March 2025.
The news that Wales will remain in prison came just over a month after Cheri Lindsey's father, David Lindsey, died. He and his wife repeatedly opposed the possible parole of their daughter's killer.
Wales is being held in Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in Erie County.
