A Fulton man convicted of chasing and ramming a driver for miles, before forcing him into a fatal crash, has once again been denied parole.
In 2011, William LeVea pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide, DWI, and criminal possession of a weapon.
He was sentenced to six to 18 years in prison for instigating the crash that killed Christopher Spack, of Camillus.
According to the Cayuga County District Attorney’s Office, both the prosecutors and Spack’s family are relieved that his killer will remain behind bars.
“We are all grateful that the Parole Board has taken our concerns and those of Chris’ family and the public into consideration and is keeping this killer in prison,” said Assistant District Attorney Diane Adsit.
Spack’s family has consistently fought to keep LeVea behind bars.
LeVea – who is now 86 years old – is in prison at the Fishkill Correctional Facility.
He has been denied parole on multiple occasions.
In 2014 and 2015, LeVea sought medical parole. He also sought medical parole in 2016.
In July 2015, he was denied parole during his first regularly scheduled hearing.
After his most recent denial of parole, he will not have another hearing until 2019.
