      Ark. Parole Board denies commutation for killers

      LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Parole Board has denied the commutation requests of two convicted killers.

      The board said in a news release Monday that it rejected the requests of Jamie Bowen and Douglas Harper.

      The Arkansas Department of Correction website shows Bowen is serving life in prison for first-degree murder in Lonoke County and that Harper is serving 20 years for first-degree murder and robbery in Columbia County.
