The man convicted in a 2011 two-vehicle crash that killed a 2-year-old Bellevue boy has been ordered back to prison for at least five years for violating his parole in a 1981 slaying.

The Delaware Board of Parole revoked 54-year-old Leamond Pierce's parole, saying he can reapply in five years. The truck driver from New Castle, Delaware was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular homicide in February in the death of Robert "Aiden" Curry.

Pierce was driving a semi on Interstate 80 near Waverly in December 2011 when it rear-ended a vehicle. Authorities said poor weather conditions contributed to the crash. Pierce was sentenced to 300 days in prison, fined $500 and returned to custody in Delaware in March.

Pierce had been sentenced to life after pleading guilty to second-degree murder for the execution-style slaying of 30-year-old James Alfred Poon and was first granted parole in 1995.
