Parole board rejects Matthew Solomon's bid for freedom

The man convicted in one of Long Island's most publicized murders will remain behind bars for at least two more years. The State Parole Board has rejected Matthew Solomon's bid for freedom. He was sentenced to 17 years to life for killing his newlywed wife, Lisa Solomon, on Christmas Eve in 1987. He then hid her body on the side of the road and claimed she disappeared after going for a walk. It is the fourth time his bid for parole was denied.
