COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – A parole board in Columbia has denied early parole Monday for the man convicted of killing his wife at their Socastee Mini Mart in 2008.

According to Assistant Solicitor Brad Richardson, Asghar Eliaderani was denied early parole during a parole hearing at 9 a.m.

Eliaderani, 56, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in March of 2010 in the death of his wife, Farrah Abbasi, 40, in 2008. According to a police report, investigators were called to the Socastee Mini Mart located on Highway 544 at 11 p.m. March 16. Upon arrival, they found Eliaderani covered in blood.

According to the report, Eliaderani told investigators his wife was inside the store behind a counter.

Officers found Abbasi lying on the floor, unresponsive, and noted blood throughout the front area of the store.

A jury found Eliaderani not guilty of murder, however, found him guilty of manslaughter. A judge sentenced Eliaderani to five years in prison.

Eliderani will be available again for parole in March of 2012.
