AUSTIN (KXAN) - Recently eligible for bail in October, Laura Hall was denied parole and will stay in prison for her participation in a gruesome West Campus murder cover-up in 2005.
Hall is serving a 10-year sentence for tampering with evidence in connection with the mutilation of University of Texas student Jennifer Cave's body after Colton Pitonyak murdered her.
Pitonyak is serving a 55-year prison sentence for Cave's murder. The two friends then fled to Mexico in Hall's Cadillac before authorities caught up with them later.
Hall was convicted in 2007 and sentenced in July.
Officials transferred Hall into state custody Aug. 3, when she was then taken to Plane State Jail in Dayton, Texas.
Hall will again be eligible for parole in December.
