HOUSTON (FOX26) - “If you want to put a poster child for career habitual violent felon there’s no better choice than William David Kelley,” said crime victims advocate Andy Kahan.
Add up all his sentences together and Kelley should spend 60 years in prison.
He spent 20 years in prison for a crime he committed in 1990.
Kelley would later learn he picked the wrong person to attack when he chose Pam Lychner.
“Kelley comes in and grabs her from behind chokes her starts pounding on her drags her into the closet,” Kahan said.
It happened while Lychner a realtor was showing a house.
“He had a knife he had duct tape and it’s my belief that he intended to tie her up and kill her with the knife,” Joe Lychner said in 2012.
Pam Lychner went on to establish Justice For All a crime victims organization that changed both state and national laws.
In 1996 Lychner and her two young daughters died when TWA flight 800 exploded after take-off.
“Her legacy will live on long after you and I have passed away,” Kahan said.
Six months after being released for attacking Lychner Kelley was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.
In 2012 he got twenty years for that.
An unprecedented sentence for failing to register.
“I’ve never seen anybody get that amount of time other than William David Kelley,” said Kahan.
Now Kelley is once again under consideration for parole and Andy Kahan says he will do all he can to prevent that from happening.
