Parole denied for man who killed teen wife

CARSON CITY — The state Parole Board has denied for a seventh time the release of a man convicted of stabbing his 19-year-old wife to death in Henderson and dumping her body in the desert.

Simon Macias pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1993 and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Carole Nicoletti, the mother of victim Susan Macias, has conducted a petition campaign before each parole hearing to stop Macias’ release. She has said she fears for her safety if he is freed.

The board set May 2016 for the next hearing for Macias.
