COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19)  - The Ohio State Parole Board has denied parole to the man convicted of killing a Springfield Township child nearly 30 years ago.

  

Adrian Williams has served 28 years for killing Jason Evers in 1982.   Williams kidnapped Evers, lured him into the woods while he was playing with his sister near their Springfield Township home, and Evers was never seen alive again. 

Williams was a teenager at the time. He was later convicted of kidnapping and involuntary manslaughter for Jason's death, but not murder.

Williams will not be eligible for parole until June 2015.

Evers' case has made headlines again recently after an Oregon man was found to have stolen his identity following his death.
