The man who brutally murdered Lower Hutt schoolgirl Karla Cardno in 1989 will remain behind bars for another year despite spending nearly quarter of a century in jail.
Paul Dally appeared in front of the Parole Board two weeks ago and it confirmed today it had declined him parole for another year because he remained “an undue risk to the safety of the community”.
He snatched Karla, 13, as she cycled home in May 1989 and dragged her to his nearby house, where he raped and tortured her, watching from his window as her family frantically searched for her outside.
He later drove to Pencarrow Head, south of Eastbourne, where he smashed her head with driftwood and buried her alive in a shallow grave with her hands bound. Her body was found several weeks later.
