HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

A man who shot his wife, leaving her paralyzed, and killed his former fiance' is up for parole.

In a span of less than 10 years, Gary Heath killed one female victim and nearly killed another, his former wife, Deanna Louderback.

Louderback was shot point blank range in the left temple when she went to open up her bar in Colerain Township.

"I fear for my life and my family's life," Louderback said about the possibility of Heath gaining his parole.

Toni Bean, Heath's first wife, says she was also beaten.

"If he ever finds me, he will kill me," she said. "It was like living with the devil - evil."

Heath has served 16 years and is currently in the Lebanon Correctional Facility as a result of his convictions in both Hamilton and Warren counties.

In 1994, he was convicted of aggravated burglary, attempted murder, burglary and felonious assault in Hamilton County and received consecutive sentences totaling approximately 28 to 65 years, plus a three-year gun specification.

Then in 1996 heath was convicted of murder in Warren County, and was sentenced to serve 15 years to life in prison, consecutive to the sentences imposed in Hamilton County.

Heath was also convicted of breaking and entering in 1979 and receiving stolen property in 1982. In both cases, it appears heath was paroled from prison, violated his parole, and was returned to prison.

Prosecutors in both counties are against Heath's parole.

The Ohio Parole Board is reviewing Heath's case. They have 30 days to decide if he will get parole.
