Modesto man denied parole in 1989 murder

A Modesto man convicted in a 1989 murder-for-hire case was found unsuitable for parole, Stanislaus County District Attorney Birgit Fladager said in a news release. Just prior to his scheduled parole hearing in Corcoran, Mendonca waived his right to the hearing, and to any further hearings in the next five years.
