The New York State Board of Parole has now reversed its decision to release a Poughkeepsie man who killed his parents and 8-year-old brother more than two decades ago.
Brian Britton, 50, will now remain behind bars until his next scheduled parole hearing in July.

Britton violently killed his family inside their Dutchess County home in 1989 with a shotgun. 
He’s served 34 years of his 25 years to life sentence. 
The board had granted him release during a special hearing in March but reversed its decision during a hearing on May 31, after new evidence about his ineligibility for parole surfaced, and safety concerns from his surviving sister and the district attorney.
