Dawlish murder bid man's parole bid dashed
THE mother of prisoner Ian Hurved — currently serving 12 years for the attempted murder of his police officer wife — is disappointed after he was refused parole.
The inmate of HMP Rye Hill has never accepted the court’s version of events and is bidding for freedom by way of a third appeal.
He was convicted in December 2004 of stabbing his estranged wife Fay in a row at their home in Dawlish.
His family have never accepted the verdict and are campaigning for his release believing that it was Fay who was the aggressor in the incident.

But his hopes of an early release were dashed as the parole board told him this week he would not be allowed out on licence. The application was considered on October 26, but the authorities have concluded he was “not suitable for early release”. The report said: “The panel concluded the risks Mr Hurved presents can not be safely managed in the community. Parole is therefore refused.”
He recently told the Echo he feared he would not be granted parole as he has never admitted his guilt.
His mother Barbara Mitchell, 86, of St Thomas, in Exeter, said: “It was not totally unexpected. Ian did not think he would get parole because he has not accepted the court’s verdict, but deep down we were hoping for good news.
“I thought that as Ian has an exemplary prison record it may have worked in his favour.”
Mr Hurved said: “To reiterate, I cannot remember what happened for approximately two minutes on the said date. How can I admit or be in denial as to what happened if I cannot remember?”
Alongside the appeal, the CPS is looking at papers from Devon and Cornwall police in relation to a statement made by a member of the public concerning the security of the crime scene.
