Karla Cardno's killer denied parole

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 Harbour.

Dally's last failed parole attempt was in 2010.
