David Ramiro Alvarez

David Ramiro Alvarez, 46, is serving a sentence of 25 years to life, with the possibility of parole, in Calipatria State Prison for the murder of 14-year-old Nordhoff freshman Kali Manley in 1998. His next parole hearing is scheduled to be held in 2028.

At his nearly hourlong parole hearing on Jan. 19, held via videoconference, David Ramiro Alvarez, 46, who is serving a sentence of 25 years to life with the possibility of parole, for murdering 14-year-old Nordhoff freshman Kali Manley in 1998, was granted a five-year postponement. He will be up for parole again in 2028.

Appearing on camera at Calipatria State Prison, starting at 10:30 a.m., Alvarez accepted the recommendation of the commissioners for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for the postponement, through his attorney. That time would allow him to continue to take classes and address his substance-abuse addictions, which his attorney said might make him suitable for release in the future.
