The man who kidnapped, tortured and brutally murdered Lower Hutt schoolgirl Karla Cardno will remain in jail for at least another year.

Paul Joseph Dally has already served 23 years of a life sentence but the Parole Board considers him too dangerous to be freed.

Dally waived his right to appear before the Parole Board today.

In his absence the board said it was "not satisfied that he no longer poses an undue risk to the safety of the community".

It declined his parole and scheduled another appearance in a year's time.

Dally kidnapped 13-year-old Karla in May 1989 as she cycled to her Lower Hutt home.

He then raped and tortured her in his nearby home, watching from the window as her frantic family searched outside.

Later he drove to the Pencarrow Coast, near Eastbourne, where he smashed her skull with a piece of driftwood and buried her face-down, naked and still alive, with her hands bound.

Her body was found several weeks later.
