The man who tortured and murdered Lower Hutt schoolgirl Karla
Cardno has been denied parole.
Paul Joseph Dally (52) who has spent almost 24 years in jail
for the 1989 murder, faced the Parole Board today, seeking
his release from prison.
After today's hearing, the Parole Board said it was not
satisfied that he no longer posed an undue risk to the safety
of the community.
He was given a life sentence in 1990.
Dally snatched 13-year-old Karla from her bike as she rode
home from the local shops, dragged her to his house and
repeatedly raped and tortured her for 22 hours.
He later put her naked, bound and gagged in the boot of his
car and buried her alive in a shallow grave near Wellington
Dally's last failed parole attempt was in 2010.
