WOODBURY - A man convicted in one of Long Island’s most famous murders will be staying behind bars for at least another two years.

This morning, the state parole board rejected Matthew Solomon’s latest bid for freedom.

Solomon was convicted of strangling his newlywed wife on Christmas Eve of 1987, then hiding her body and leading police on a phony search for her.

Solomon was sentenced to 18 years to life in prison.

This is Solomon’s fifth time he has been turned down for parole.

Solomon will be eligible to apply again in 2015.
