A former Texas A&M student who killed two local women after driving drunk, will not be getting out of prison early.

Kyle Johnson was denied parole this week because of the excessive amount of alcohol involved in the offense, and because his crime was a conscious disregard for life, safety and the property of others, according to the parole board's findings.

Johnson's Blood Alcohol Level was two-and-a-half times the legal limit when he killed Brittany Young, 20, and Hollie Winn, 21, in 2002.

Johnson has served just over two-and-a-half years of his 12 year sentence.
He was also sentenced to do a Public Service Announcement on the consequences of drinking and driving.

Last week, the Winn family asked the parole board to deny Johnson parole, while the Young family recommended his release.
