ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) -- A man convicted of killing an Oklahoma State Trooper in Carter County nearly 50 years ago was again denied parole last week.

First denied parole in 2014, Hubert Wilkinson, 69, was rejected again. He was convicted of two counts of murder in the first degree and kidnapping.

Wilkinson and his brother began their crime spree in 1970, first killing a man, and then killing Trooper Howard Crumley when he pulled them over a short time later.

While he was searching the car, they disarmed and murdered Crumley before carjacking a couple and holding them at gunpoint.

That night Wilkinson's brother shot and killed himself, and Wilkinson was arrested a short time later.
