The man convicted of killing San Diego Police Officer Archie Buggs has been granted parole suitability once again, reports KGTV.

Jesus Cecena was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for shooting Officer Archie Buggs four times during a November 1978 vehicle stop. Cecena was 17-years-old during the time of the shooting. His term was later modified to give the possibility of parole, due to a change in law making him eligible for Youth Offender Parole.

Under state law, the grant will now be under the required legal review for a maximum of 120 days, after which time it will go before Governor Jerry Brown for review.
