Leite cops plea, gets life in prison for Perry murder

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A Superior Court judge sentenced David P. Leite to life in prison yesterday for the grisly stabbing death of his live-in girlfriend in their Park Square apartment in 2009.
Leite, 35, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder before Judge Susan McGuirl just hours before he was to stand trial in the death of Mellisa “Missy” Perry. He must serve at least 20 years before he’s eligible for parole.
Prosecutor John E. Corrigan told the court that if Leite had gone to trial the state would have proven that he stabbed and slashed Perry 79 times with a utility knife.
