Syracuse, N.Y. - A state parole board denies the release of a road-rage killer.

William LeVea, 83, was seeking early release from prison due to health concerns. LeVea killed Christopher Spack in Nov. 2009 after repeatedly slamming into the back of his car until Spack was forced into a head on collision. 

LeVea, according to a jai doctor’s letter, has an unspecified terminal illness and suffers from dementia and heart issues. 

In 1954 LeVea was sentenced to five to 10 years for robbery and in 1967 he received  five years probation for beating a man to death in a bar brawl.
