A Hells Angels hitman who's serving a life sentence for murder has been denied day parole, even though he's been eligible for full parole since July.

Dean Daniel Kelsie, 46, was denied release during a hearing of the Parole Board of Canada earlier this month.

This is just the latest chapter in a long and complicated legal saga that has played out in courtrooms in Halifax and Ottawa.

Kelsie shot and killed Sean Simmons in the lobby of an apartment building in north-end Dartmouth, N.S., on Oct. 3, 2000. Kelsie was one of four men who took part in the killing.

Two other men, Neil William Smith and Wayne Alexander James, are serving life sentences for their roles in Simmons's killing. A fourth man, Steven Gareau, was set free in 2018 after a judge ended the prosecution against him.

Simmons was gunned down on orders from a Hells Angel because he allegedly had an affair with a gang member's wife.

Initial conviction overturned

Kelsie was initially convicted of first-degree murder, but that conviction was overturned on appeal.

Crown prosecutors took the case to the Supreme Court of Canada to try to get that conviction restored. The Supreme Court refused to do that and instead — with the consent of the lawyers — substituted a conviction for second-degree murder.

The change was significant for Kelsie because a first-degree murder conviction meant he had to serve a minimum of 25 years before he could begin applying for parole. The change to second-degree reduced that period of parole ineligibility to time served, because Kelsie has been in prison since his arrest in 2001.

Convicted Ontario scammer who took $1.2 million gets quick parole

  Convicted Ontario scammer who took $1.2 million gets quick parole A scammer who duped Ontario consumers out of more than $1.24 million has been released on day parole just six months after he was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in federal prison. "I think it's outrageous," said Karim Hajee, one of the victims of Adam Gardin -- a contractor he hired for a large home renovation. "Adam's sentence is not a deterrent to anyone with intentions of swindling money from people." Hajee paid Gardin more than $150,000. Gardin pleaded guilty to 11 charges of engaging in an unfair practice under Ontario's Consumer Protection Act.

A judge of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court accepted a joint recommendation for the new sentence during a hearing last summer. That left Kelsie's fate in the hands of the parole board.

Kelsie's time in prison has been marked by conflict and violence. He has 20 disciplinary offences, including fighting, uttering threats and failing drug tests. The most recent incident was in May of last year.

Parole board says things have changed

But the parole board noted that things have changed with his new sentence.

"Since then, the psychologist mentioned that you indeed seem to demonstrate a considerable improvement in your behaviour, and this, while displaying a desire and an ability to open up, to investigate your internal universe and to confront your dark areas."

However, in rejecting his bid for release, the Board found Kelsie needs to do more before he can be reintegrated into a society he has not been part of for two decades.

"The board notes that your criminality is persistent and polymorphous. You have a history of violent acting out. The present offence shows an aggravation of the criminal acting out to an extreme level as you caused the death of the victim."

His case will be reviewed again in 18 months.
