The Romulus man accused of killing two people in a 2015 accident returned to Seneca County Court Monday — and his exchanges with District Attorney Barry Porsch were testy at times.
Earl Wilson was on the witness stand for about two hours while he recalled the Sept. 16 crash on Route 96A in Fayette that claimed the lives of Steve Lester of Manchester and Patty Perryman of Canandaigua.
In 2016, county Judge Dennis Bender sentenced Wilson to 15 years-to-life in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of manslaughter, and felony driving while intoxicated. Wilson tried to withdraw his plea at a later date, claiming his attorney at the time, Assistant Public Defender John Nabinger, coerced him into pleading guilty.
Bender rejected Wilson’s request.
