(Carson City, NV) — Convicted murderer Simon Macias has been ordered to remain in prison 22 years after murdering his 19-year-old wife and dumping her body in the desert outside of Las Vegas.

KRNV-TV reports the state Parole Board denied Macias request for release on Tuesday despite his insistence he’s been rehabilitated since stabbing Susan Nicoletti to death in Henderson in 1991. His next eligible date for parole will be May 1, 2016.

Macias said in testimony before the parole board in Carson City on February 7 he would not commit another crime if released. But Nicoletti’s family collected thousands of petition signatures and pleaded with the panel to keep him in prison.
