MURRAY -- A convicted murderer will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Wednesday, the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole ordered Thomas Noffsinger to serve the rest of his natural life in prison for the 1990 stabbing death of restaurant cook Victor Aguilar.

Aguilar was a chef at Marie Callender's in Salt Lake City. On March 3, 1990, Aguilar got to work and surprised two men trying to burglarize the restaurant. One of them was Noffsinger, who stabbed Aguilar five times and slit his throat.

Wednesday's ruling is a result of a parole hearing held March 2 where the families of Aguilar and Annette Hill, who's been missing for 20 years, testified. Hill's family believes Noffsinger may be responsible for her disappearance after police found her purse with blood on it at Noffsinger's apartment.
