LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - An assistant Warren County Prosecutor is working to keep a cop killer behind bars.

Bruce McGary is asking the Ohio Parole Board to oppose the release of Anthony McIntosh.

McIntosh has been in prison since 1987, when he shot a Morrow police officer Jeff Phegley in the chest during a routine traffic stop.

McGary is asking the community to write the parole board asking them to deny McIntosh's parole.
