COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – One of the people convicted in the murder of a Shoals woman has been denied parole.

Amanda Taylor’s family confirms Ashley Greenhill was denied parole this morning.  They were in Montgomery to speak before the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Greenhill is serving a 10-year prison sentence for her role in Taylor’s murder.  Greenhill was sentenced just three months ago.

“I’m not surprised her parole was denied,” said Colbert County District Attorney, Bryce Graham.  “The reason the parole is up so soon is because she’s been in jail since the crime happened, and she got credit for time served.”

Greenhill and two other co-defendants, Laurel Pruett and Matthew Fox, pleaded guilty to abuse of a corpse and hindering prosecution in Taylor's death.

Ronald Weems was convicted of the murder and dismemberment of Taylor. He is serving life in prison, but is asking for a new trial.
