The man convicted in a drunken hit and run that killed a Towson University student will remain behind bars, at least for now.
Diogo Miller Facchini, 31, of Virginia has been denied parole.
In September 2012, Facchini pleaded guilty to negligent homicide with a car and failure to stop at the scene of an accident. He was sentenced to five years in jail with five years probation.
Facchini was drunk when he hit 22-year-old Matthew Cheswick, a Howard County native and a 2008 graduate of Glenelg High School.
Cheswick was struck and killed while crossing Coastal Highway on Memorial Day weekend 2012. Facchini hit Cheswick while the younger man was walking in the bus lane then continued to drive.
The parole hearing was closed to the public. It was unclear as of post time what the grounds for denying parole were.
