A councillor in the village of Cochin is pleased with a decision by the National Parole Board regarding Norma Jean Mooswa.


Yesterday, the board turned down Mooswa’s application for an unescorted pass from a healing lodge.


Mooswa is serving a 10-year sentence for killing six people in Cochin on Canada Day 2004.


She was convicted of six counts of impaired driving causing death and four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.


Mooswa was also driving while suspended and has a history of drunk driving.


Cochin village councillor Lynn Pirot says the accident affected a lot of people.


She says Mooswa needs to understand that and learn from it.


Mooswa becomes eligible for full parole next December.
