LaBarbera denied release

Paula Bohovesky’s murderer Richard LaBarbera has again been denied release on parole.

LaBarbera and codefendant Robert McCain first put behind bars in 1981 for the 1980 murder of the 16-year-old Bohovesky as she walked home from Pearl River Library.

The hearing was actually a continuation of a December 2013 hearing, as a state judge ordered the hearing reopened, ruling that the parole panel inappropriately heard allegations of sexual abuse against LaBarbera that had been rejected by the jury in 1981.
