  It's been an emotional rollercoaster for the family of slain Fayette County Sheriff's Deputy Joseph Angelucci but, Monday, they received a small victory.  William Bennett was convicted of killing Angelucci in 1988.  Bennett is now seriously ill and his family had requested an early medical parole for him.  Monday morning, the Kentucky Parole Board decided to take no action, meaning Bennett will remain in prison until his next parole hearing in five years.

  Bennett was convicted of fatally shooting Angelucci with his own gun on November 4, 1988, as the sheriff's deputy was taking him to a mental health treatment center.  He was found guilty of murder but mentally ill and sentenced to 120 years in prison.

  Angelucci's family wants to see that the now-56-year-old Bennett never gets out of prison and they will continue to fight his release.  They consider the decision not only a victory for them, but society as well.

  Bennett is scheduled to go before the parole board again in 2016 but his family says that he is in a coma, near death, and won't live that long.
