VALLEY STREAM, New York — A Long Island family is appealing for public support to keep their young daughter's killer behind bars.
Robert Golub was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in the death of his Valley Stream neighbor Kelly Anne Tinyes (TIHN'-yehz).
Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/1i6Opwv ) says he's set for a parole hearing in November.
The family's online petition appeared on a website Wednesday.
It says Golub "must never be allowed to inflict this indescribable devastation on another human being."
Golub was denied parole two years ago when he first became eligible.
The 13-year-old girl's body was found stuffed in a sleeping bag hidden in a basement closet at Golub's home a day after she went missing.
She had been stabbed, strangled and sexually mutilated.
