Man Admitted Installing Spying Program

PA - A Pottstown man accused of illegally intercepting his father’s emails prior to his 2008 murder told investigators he had installed a program on two family computers that relayed keystrokes and other information on a daily basis, according to testimony given Thursday.

Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Robert Levan said Parth Ingle, 25, had told him in 2008 that he had installed a keystroke-logging program called eBlaster on the family computer in 2004 and on a subsequent family computer sometime in 2007.

According to Levan, Parth Ingle said his mother, Bhavnaben Ingle, told him in 2003 or 2004 that her husband had been unfaithful, but did not say his mother had directed him to install the software.

Parth and his sister, Avnee Ingle, 28, also of Pottstown, are accused of intercepting 15 emails between their father and women with whom he was believed to be having affairs.

No one has ever been charged with killing Arunkumar Ingle, whose beating and stabbing death at his Middletown home in January 2008 remains unsolved. (more)
