Marco Muzzo, sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing 4 people while driving drunk on Sept 27, 2015 in Vaughan as he returned home from his Vegas bachelor party has been granted day parole.
The mother of the three children Muzzo killed that afternoon while on his way home from the airport wrote the following post on Facebook this afternoon.
“No matter what happened today, Daniel, Harry and Milly don't get to come back home. My dad isn't coming home to my mom. Nothing changes for me. If you wrote a Community Statement for my family, thank you for doing your best. I know I did my best. My family's killer, drunk driver Marco Michael Muzzo has been granted day parole.”
Marco Muzzo was granted day parole today following a Parole Board of Canada hearing at the Beavercreek Minimum Security Institution in Gravenhurst, where Muzzo is serving his time.
Muzzo killed Daniel Neville-Lake, 9, Harrison Neville-Lake, 5, Milly Neville-Lake, 2, and their 65-year-old grandfather Gary Neville.
The children’s grandmother and great-grandmother were also seriously injured in the crash.
The Parole Board of Canada has not confirmed the decision but says a written statement will be released on Wednesday.
The night prior to the parole board hearing Neville-Lake posted the below timeline on a social media post where her heartbreak and disappointment in the justice system is clear.
