The town of Orangetown – home to Paula Bohovesky – passed a resolution at its board meeting last week condemning the state parole board’s decision to release one of her killers and asking the governor to override it. Supervisor Chris Day says he fears Richard LaBarbera, who lived in Pearl River when he was convicted in the Bohovesky killing, could return when he is released…
A caller to “The Morning Show” last week also disagreed with the board’s decision to release LaBarbera…
Robert McCain remains in prison, but is expected to come before the parole
board any day now. He and LaBarbera were both convicted of Bohevesky’s
October 1980 murder. She was beaten, stabbed and sexually assaulted while
on her way home from the Pearl River Library. The parole board did not
indicate when LaBarbera would be freed. Bohovesky supporters will be
holding a silent vigil at the Pearl River Library this Saturday night.
