SOMERS, N.Y. -- The man who beat a Somers woman to death while high on PCP blamed a troubled childhood and drug use when he testified before a parole board last month, according to a report by lohud.
Terry Losicco’s tale apparently was convincing; he is due to be released from the Fishkill Correctional Facility on Thursday, March 3, lohud reported.
Losicco, a native of Stony Point in Rockland County, was a teen incarcerated at Lincoln Hall, a juvenile facility in Somers, when he brutally killed 67-year-old Eleanor Prouty, a retired Reader's Digest editor, and attacked her disabled husband, Norman, during a botched 1980 burglary, according to multiple media reports.
The Prouty family is outraged over Losicco’s parole and has called the decision misguided and deplorable, the lohud story said.
