AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) - The state parole board has denied an 85-year-old road-rage killer’s fourth request for an early release from prison.

William LeVea (luh-VAY) was convicted of aggravated vehicular homicide and driving while intoxicated for the November 2009 death of 41-year-old Christopher Spack of Camillus, near Syracuse. Cayuga County investigators said LeVea repeatedly rammed Spack’s truck until it spun into the path of another pickup.

Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann says the parole board denied LeVea’s application for release from Fishkill state prison, where he’s serving 6 to 11 years following his 2011 conviction.

Budelmann says the board denied the application after considering public input and the likelihood of LeVea committing another offense.

It was LeVea’s third application for a medical parole for a non-terminal illness.
