SALT LAKE CITY -- A parole board wants another psychological evaluation on a man imprisoned half his life for killing a small boy in 1996 before deciding if he will be let out.

The parole board wants to know if Alexander Bybee has psychopathic traits.

Bybee told a parole board last month that he's a good man who will be a thriving member of society if released.

Bybee was convicted of strangling his 6-year-old neighbor, Lance Guevarra, and burying the body in a shallow grave. The body wasn't found until a year later after Bybee, then 16, confessed.

The two lived in a mostly-polygamous town of Big Water near the Utah-Arizona state line.
