OGDEN, Utah (AP) - An Ogden woman convicted of killing her daughter and hiding the girl’s body in a case that set off a city-wide search has been granted parole after nearly two decades in the Utah State Prison.

The Standard Examiner newspaper reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1To4z0Y) that 44-year-old Shelly Flemal is set to be released in March.

Flemal pleaded guilty to a murder charge in 1996, after acknowledging that she’d lied when she said the girl had been kidnapped.

She told a Utah parole board in June that she got mad and hit the 3-year-old girl after she interrupted her playing video games. Flemal said she didn’t mean to kill her and lied because she was afraid.

Flemal said she was a methamphetamine user at the time, but has worked hard to change and deeply regrets what she did.
