Update: Terminally Ill Inmate Granted Parole

By Marcus Cooper. CREATED Dec 3, 2013

DES MOINES - A Dying Iowa inmate will spend her final days outside prison walls.

Tuesday a state board granted parole to 33-year-old Kristina Fetters.

A judge sentenced her to life without parole for the murder of her great aunt when she was 15 back in 1994.

Fetters appealed for parole after she learned she had terminal breast cancer.

She will be released to a hospice facility.
