AP — The state Pardon and Parole Board has denied parole for a man convicted of raping and killing an employee at the State Training School in Helena.

The board rejected the request of Keith Armstrong who is serving life after pleading guilty to the 1980 murder of Maxine Fullerton.

Fullerton worked in the laundry area of the training center. Armstrong was 16 at the time and had been sent to the center after being convicted of attempted rape.

The board is recommending parole for convicted killers Norma Lumpkin and Chandra Griham. Lumpkin is serving life for killing her husband in Tulsa County and Griham is serving life for killing two Oregon teenagers in Oklahoma County.

The recommendations now go the governor.
