CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Parole has been revoked for a 56-year-old Nevada man convicted of killing his 10-month-old daughter, burning the body and burying it in the Arizona desert in 1990.

James Meegan told state parole commissioners that his arrest in May after an argument with his mother at her home in Anaheim, Calif., was a fluke that never would happen again.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports ( ) that Parole Commissioner Susan Jackson responded that Meegan knew he was on parole, and there should have been no altercation at all.

Meegan will spend at least the next two years in prison before he's allowed to seek parole again.

He was paroled in February 2011 after serving about 15 years of a 10 years to life in sentence for the murder of his daughter, Francine.
