SOMERS, N.Y. -- The Westchester County judge who sentenced Somers murderer Terry Losicco to 27 1/3 years to life in prison died Thursday, according to a recent report. 

Judge Angelo Ingrassia, 89, died Thursday just days before his 90th birthday, according to reports from The Daily Freeman and The Journal News.The Middletown resident served as a judge for Orange, Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester and Rockland counties until 1999, according to the reports.

Ingrassia sentenced Losicco, who was 16 at the time of the crime, and fellow Lincoln Hall resident David Hollis in the 1980 murder of Somers resident Eleanor Prouty.

The two broke into the home of Eleanor and Norman Prouty, where they expected to find a large sum of money. Eleanor Prouty, 67, was beaten to death and sodomized. Norman Prouty, who used a wheelchair because of multiple sclerosis, was badly beaten and survived but lived the rest of his life in a nursing home.

Losicco reportedly was scheduled to go before the New York State Parole Board this week. The board has yet to announce its decision, which is expected within the next two days. Hollis was granted parole in 2010.
