Man tied to Creba killing busted - a day before parole

Jane Creba was 15 when she was shot dead on a busy downtown Toronto
street while shopping with her sister on Boxing Day in 2005.

Creba wasn't a dope dealer, nor had she disrespected

She was just an average teen whose promising young life was snuffed
out by a stray bullet on Yonge St.

Now, Louis Raphael Woodcock, 30, convicted of manslaughter in
connection with Creba's murder, has been charged by cops in Kingston
for drug trafficking - with one day left on his parole.

Woodcock is either unlucky or stupid.

He was fingered by a member of the public and cops arrested

According to Postmedia Network, detectives contacted the National
Parole Monitoring Centre and a parole revocation warrant was issued.

Officers busted him in his car, allegedly in possession of $3,000 in
cash and multiple cellphones.

Cops say marijuana, a digital scale, cellophane baggies, more
cellphones and various drug paraphernalia were found in Woodcock's
motel room.

Woodcock was convicted in 2010 of manslaughter and four counts of
aggravated assault following the death of Creba, who was caught in the
crossfire between two rival groups of thugs. He was one of four people
found guilty in Creba's death.

Jorrell-Simpson Rowe and Jeremiah Valentine were convicted of
second-degree murder.

Tyshaun Barnett was found guilty of manslaughter.

Before sentencing Woodcock to the big house, Superior Court Justice
Gladys Pardu said she was taking into account that he was only 18 years old.

"The possibility that they can turn around their lives and become
productive law-abiding members of the community cannot be entirely
discounted," an optimistic Pardu said at the time.

Detectives said at least seven bullets were fired from Woodcock's 9-mm
semi-automatic Ruger - none of which hit Creba.

But Woodcock was no lost lamb, despite the judge's sunny

In wiretapped conversations before his arrest, Woodcock "brags with
evident glee" about choking another man and jumping on his head until
he was unconscious and in a coma.

The Toronto Sun reported that in a pre-sentencing report a
psychiatrist found more than half of those with his score on the
Violence Risk Appraisal Guide would go on to further violent criminal
activity within 10 years of their release.

Woodcock is charged with possession of a controlled substance for the
purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.

Conditions of Woodcock's parole included he not consume, purchase or
possess any non-prescribed medication or over-the-counter drugs.

His parole would have ended Thursday.
