MENTOR ON THE LAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A convicted killer will stay behind bars for killing a Mentor-on-the-Lake teen. Parole was denied for Scott Grant. 

Grant was convicted of killing teenager Michelle Hayes and burying her in a shallow grave. 

Grant has been behind bars for 30 years. In 2015, Michelle's sister, Dawn Hayes started to gather names in a Facebook petition to take with her when she testified before the parole board.

"It's my intention to make sure Scott Grant serves every second of his maximum sentence and that it 40 years," Dawn said in 2015. 

Grant's friend, Stephen Cohen, was also convicted for helping to bury the teen's body. He was released in 2010.
