Richard Boxley More News

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the death sentence for a New York City man who shot and killed a Reading man in broad daylight in a drug dispute in July 1997.

Richard Boxley, 36, had appealed a Sept. 28, 2004, death sentence that Judge Jeffrey L. Schmehl ordered after a jury convicted Boxley and sentenced him to death.

It was the second time Boxley was sentenced to death for killing Jarvay “Jason” Bolton, 24, of 1001 Chestnut St. on July 11, 1997.

Boxley was first convicted in 2000 of first-degree murder and sentenced to death, but the Supreme Court overturned the sentence, ruling Judge Stephen B. Lieberman did not let the lawyers question each potential juror in detail.

According to testimony:

Richard Boxley plotted with Jose Busanet of Reading, also known as Tito Black, to kill Bolton. They went with Wilson Melendez, a friend of Busanet’s, to the 100 block of South Sixth Street in the middle of the afternoon.

When Bolton approached, Boxley and Busanet began firing. Bolton died of gunshot wounds to his chest.

Busanet, 31, was convicted and sentenced to death.

He is on death row in the State Correctional Institution at Greensburg, Greene County.

Melendez, 26, is serving three to six years in state prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to commit the murder.
