(INDIANAPOLIS) - A man convicted in the 1986 killing and dismemberment of an Indiana University graduate student has lost his latest bid for parole.

The Herald-Times reports the Indiana Parole Board rejected Robert Evan Lee's parole request in January after he appeared via video conference from the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City. The 59-year-old can seek parole again next January.

Lee was sentenced in 1987 to 60 years in prison after a jury convicted him of murder and dismemberment in the Bloomington killing 31-year-old Ellen Marks.

Lee was released from prison in September 2012 after serving 25 years for good behavior and educational achievements.

Lee was supposed to live in Bloomington after he was released from prison but public outcry forced Lee to move from Bloomington, to North Vernon and Indianapolis.

His parole was revoked two months after his release after he violated the terms of his parole by riding a short distance with a woman in a car. Lee told authorities he was assisting a person with directions. Parole officials say Lee was hitchhiking.
