The Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole is reversing its decision to free a former Ivy League professor who beat his wife to death in 2006.

The board made its decision public Wednesday, a day after family members of Ellen Robb met with a board official and submitted what they call evidence that her former husband is a danger to society.
 
In November, the board approved Rafael Robb for parole and scheduled him to be released Monday. Its new decision says he's a risk to the community and won't get parole until at least September 2014. He killed his wife in their suburban Philadelphia home.
 
Rafael Robb pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and has served six years. He became eligible for parole when he reached his minimum sentence.
