WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials have ordered a man convicted in a 2011 two-vehicle crash that killed a 2-year-old Nebraska boy back to prison for at least five years for violating his parole in a 1981 slaying.
The Delaware Board of Parole revoked 54-year-old Leamond Pierce’s parole in Tuesday. The board says he can reapply for parole in five years.
Pierce, a truck driver, was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular homicide in February in the death of Robert “Aiden” Curry of Bellevue, Nebraska. He was sentenced to 300 days in prison and returned to custody in Delaware in March.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports (https://delonline.us/1ioZHWl) that Pierce was sentenced to life after pleading guilty to second-degree murder for the execution-style slaying of 30-year-old James Alfred Poon. He was first granted parole in 1995.
