REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — A southeastern Idaho man who lived with the partially mummified bodies of his wife and adult daughter for years can’t have his involuntary manslaughter convictions cleared from his record until 2018.

The Post Register reports that a judge on Monday ruled 74-year-old Kenichi David Kaneko’s request for a withheld judgment can only be considered five years after a defendant has completed probation. Authorities say Kaneko allowed his wife and daughter, both of whom were mentally ill, to die from starvation and sickness.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in 2007, and was sentenced to four to 10 years in prison with a six-month mental health rider program. Kaneko completed the six-month program and was released on a probation, which ended in 2013.
