DENVER (AP) — A man who raped and killed Kelsey Grammer's sister nearly 40 years ago has been denied parole after the actor testified against his release.

A prison spokeswoman said Wednesday that Freddie Glenn's parole request has been denied for now.

Glenn, who is serving a life sentence, was convicted of killing Karen Elisa Grammer after kidnapping her from a Colorado Springs Red Lobster restaurant where she worked in 1975. He also was convicted of killing two men in separate slayings.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1s1EgB5) Glenn was tearful at times as he apologized during Tuesday's parole hearing. He was 18 at the time of Karen Grammer's death and said he thinks he deserves a second chance.

Kelsey Grammer says he accepted Glenn's apology, but endorsing his release would be a "betrayal of my sister's life."
