Abstract: Suppose that $ P$ is a convex polyhedron in the hyperbolic $ 3$-space with finite volume and $ P$ has integer $ ( > 1)$ submultiples of $ \pi $ as dihedral angles. We prove that if the rank of the abelianization of a normal torsion-free finite index subgroup of the polyhedral group $ G$ associated to $ P$ is one, then $ P$ has exactly one ideal vertex of type $ (2,2,2,2)$ and $ G$ has an index two subgroup which does not contain any one of the four standard generators of the stabilizer of the ideal vertex.
