COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Board of Parole has denied a convicted murderer’s request to be released because she has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Jennifer Reali was convicted of killing her lover’s wife in Colorado Springs in 1990. She is now in a Lakewood halfway house.

According to KRDO-TV (https://tinyurl.com/ppsfz8f ), the board took less than 30 minutes to unanimously deny Reali’s request.

Reali was denied release during a regular parole hearing in October. She then asked the Colorado Board of Parole for a special needs hearing. The board could have granted her early release on the basis of her cancer diagnosis.

The decision means that Reali will continue to be held at the halfway house where she has lived since Gov. Bill Ritter commuted her sentence of life in prison.
