KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A woman convicted of deliberate homicide for a 2009 car crash in which she killed two people has been granted parole just over four years into her 15-year sentence.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://goo.gl/5LXySh ) that 22-year-old Justine Winter was granted parole by the state on Monday. She needs to complete pre-release requirements, but will likely be released in December.

Winter was sentenced in 2011 for the deaths of 35-year-old Erin Thompson, who was pregnant, and her son 13-year-old Caden Odell. Investigators say Winters drove her car head-on into Thompson’s vehicle at 85 mph after texting her boyfriend that she planned to kill herself.

If Winter violates the terms of her parole she could be imprisoned for more than 15 years.
