WOODLAND HILLS—On Wednesday May 30, a Ladera Heights man was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison for leading police on a chase in 2009 that led to a pedestrian’s death, according to reports.
Kelly Keller, 31, received his life sentence after being convicted January 17 of second-degree murder for the September 26, 2009 death of 66-year-old Dean William Greenwalt of Woodland Hills.
The events took place after CHP initially began pursuing Keller when he failed to stop for a traffic violation on the southbound Ventura 101 Freeway in Calabasas.
In addition to his second-degree murder conviction Keller was also found guilty of attempted murder of a peace officer, assault with a semi-automatic firearm on a peace officer, felony evading causing death, resisting an officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
During his trail, Keller was determined by jurors to be sane when he committed his crimes.
