CLEVELAND– The man who killed a pizza delivery driver in 2015 was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years on Thursday.
Tyrone Leegrand, 26, was found guilty of several charges including felonious assault, carrying a concealed weapon and tampering with evidence last month in the death of Michael Prock, 41, of Cleveland.
“He’ll never walk me down the aisle, he’ll never meet his grandchildren,” said Carrie Prock, the victim’s daughter. “We want the max.”
Prock was working as a driver for Nunzio’s Pizza on Lorain Avenue. He was delivering food at West 59th Street and Bridge Avenue on June 11, 2015 when he was approached by Leegrand, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.
Prock started to drive away and Leegrand shot at the car, prosecutors said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound, but continued to drive until he crashed into a pole.
Prosecutors said Leegrand has been a danger to the community since he was 18 years old.
