Man to get 2037 parole hearing in murder case

A Duschene County man sentenced to prison after a fatal shooting will be middle-aged before he gets a chance to appear before the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole.

After a paper review, the board set an original hearing for Bruce Silva, 24, for 2037, when he will be nearly 50. That's the average wait for a first hearing for someone convicted of murder.

Silva received a 15 to life term in June after pleading guilty to one first-degree felony count of murder and a second-degree count of aggravated assault. As part of the plea deal, prosecutors dropped seven other charges.

In June 2011, Silva fatally shot James Carey, 25, and wounded Jared Hurley after a late night altercation in Lapoint that Uintah County investigators said began when a broken car window ignited tension between rival gang members. Silva fled to Tijuana, Mexico; he was arrested two months later and brought back to Utah. Six other people, including three of Silva's brothers, also were charged in the incident.
