Parole denied in DUI that killed college student
CRANSTON, R.I. —
Parole has been denied for a man who caused a 2001 drunken driving crash that killed a Salve Regina University student.
WPRO-AM reports that the Rhode Island Parole Board denied Wayne Winslow's bid for parole on Wednesday after hearing from the family of Brigid Kelly, who was 20 years old when she was killed in the crash.
Winslow is serving a 17-year sentence. He was drunk when he drove a stolen van into a minivan on Route 1 in North Kingstown. That car then went head-on into a car driven by Kelly, killing her.
Parole Board Chairman Kenneth Walker says Winslow could be released from prison as soon as the end of next year due to good behavior.
