Lucy and Frank Shivak were devastated by the murder of their adult daughter 23 years ago. Now, the killer may be allowed to leave prison, according to a published report.

In December, members of the state's board of parole determined that Jeffrey Langnese, who admitted that he savagely beat and killed Lisa Marie Shivak in 1986, has been deemed suitable for parole, the North County Times reported.

Langnese beat the 27-year-old woman at his El Cajon home, wrapped her body and dumped it on the Viejas Indian reservation in East County. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 15 years to life, the paper reported.

Langnese's release must first be approved by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
