SCHUYLER COUNTY, N.Y. (WETM) – Chad Mack, who was convicted of the 2001 murder of Theresa Ford, had a motion seeking a reduction of his 25 years to life sentence denied.
Mack, who pleaded guilty to Murder in the Second Degree and Robbery in the First Degree, filed the motion in July to appear before a parole board immediately.
Acting Schulyer County Judge Gerald A. Keene denied Mack’s motion.
Mack and co-defendant Elizabeth Kettle, on the evening of August 17, 2002, went to Ford’s home in the Town of Orange planning to rob her so Kettle could pay a DWI lawyer.
Kettle lured Ford outside of her home claiming her car had broken down. Kettle then shot Ford six times inside the home after demanding money.
Kettle and Mack stole $700 from Ford’s home during the burglary.
Mack knew Ford after painting her home and being paid in cash.
