COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (AP) - "Frasier'' star Kelsey Grammer
has missed a parole hearing for the man convicted of killing his sister in 1975.

Grammer planned to attend the hearing Monday at a state prison
in Limon, 90 miles southeast of Denver, but a Department of
Corrections spokeswoman says rain caused Grammer to miss a connecting flight.

Fifty-year-old Freddie Glenn is serving a life sentence for first-degree murder in the slaying of Karen Grammer.

He became eligible for parole in 2006.

Eighteen-year-old Karen Grammer was abducted, raped and stabbed in Colorado Springs on July 1, 1975.

Colorado law no longer allows parole in life sentences for first-degree murder, but Glenn was convicted before the law was changed.
