FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The full Kentucky Parole Board will decide whether to free a woman convicted in a notorious Lexington slaying after nearly 30 years in prison.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (https://bit.ly/1QpJ9Dc ) the two-person panel of the board didn’t make a decision Tuesday after meeting with Karen Brown, deferring the decision to the full board.

Brown is one of three people convicted in the 1986 stabbing death of 22-year-old Michael Turpin. She was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years. She was denied parole in 2011.

Turpin’s wife, Elizabeth Turpin, and Keith Bouchard were also convicted in his death. Prosecutors say Elizabeth Turpin enlisted Brown and Keith Bouchard to kill him so she could collect from insurance policies.

If granted parole, Brown would be released in February.
