PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A woman serving a 100-year prison sentence for killing her 3-year-old daughter in their Huron home by stabbing her more than 70 times is up for parole again.

The Capital Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2txhQSl ) that 60-year-old Debra Jenner is to go before the parole board in mid-July. She’s spent nearly three decades behind bars and already has been denied parole more than a dozen times.

Authorities say Jenner in April 1987 stabbed Abby Jenner repeatedly with a toy metal airplane and a kitchen knife. She was sentenced the following year to life in prison, but then-Gov. Bill Janklow in January 2003 reduced the sentence to 100 years in return for Jenner admitting the crime.
